What to Expect (Itinerary)
A driver/chauffeur will pick you up in the early morning from your hotel in Agra or any other location in Agra Then, visit the Taj Mahal, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983. The Taj was built by Shah Jahan as a memorial for his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to their 14th child in 1631. The whole complex was not completed until 1653.
Later, proceed to Agra Fort, another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its construction along the bank of the Yamuna River was initiated by Emperor Akbar in 1565. Further additions were made, particularly by his grandson Shah Jahan, using his favourite building material – white marble.
Next, visit Itmad-Ud-Daula, nicknamed the Baby Taj. The exquisite tomb of Mizra Ghiyas Beg should not be missed. This was the first Mughal structure built completely from marble. Or Visit Mehtab Bagh with an exceptional sunset view of the Taj Mahal. This park fell into disrepair until it was little more than a huge mound of sand. To protect the Taj from the erosive effects of the sand blown across the river, the park was reconstructed and is now one the best places from which to view the great mausoleum. Later, you will be dropped at your hotel or another desired location in Agra.
