MY TRAVEL DIARY

Celebrating most cherished moments of my life – as a amateur traveler – in different parts of the world…..

AGRA – CITY OF TAJ, UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA

It would not be wrong to say Agra is synonym to Taj Mahal. The City is famous because of this spectacular monument in the city, Taj Mahal – 7th Wonder of the World.

Have visited Taj Mahal 3-4times, andthe white beautiful stone structure is mesmerizing every time i have seen.

It is weekend gateway from Delhi and takes 3-4 hours road drive. One can either come back the same day or can stay for a day to enjoy the beauty.

Best time to visit – August – Mar (when the climate is cooler). During summer, the flooring gets very hot to walk (as you need to remove your shoes).

A must visit place.

Other Tourist Attractions includes :-

Agra Fort

Is a typical example of Mughal architecture. The Fort is made of Red Sandstone which looks beautiful during the day time under the sun rays.

The fort includes Sheesh Mahal (full of mirror), Moti Masjid (pearl) and Diwan-e-Am/khas (halls for public & private audience), which is definitely worth visiting atleast once.

Fateh Pur Sikri

Famous for its Buland Darwaza(very lofty gate), made from red & buff sandstone, can be visited once.
