Agra

The former Mughal capital of India, Agra is one of the largest cities in Uttar Pradesh and is dominated by three of the country’s most magnificent buildings – Agra Fort, the tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula and the world renowned Taj Mahal. Enter the imposing Agra Fort, constructed by the Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1565 and enclosed by towering red sandstone walls, then cross the wide Yamuna River to the peaceful tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula – affectionately known as the ‘Baby Taj’. No visit to Agra is complete without spending time at the Taj Mahal which was built by Shah Jahan as a memorial to his wife Mumtaz. Restored by Lord Curzon after the decline of the Mughal Empire led to a period of disrepair, the Taj Mahal is one of the highlights of northern India and a building of both power and beauty. With our knowledge and experience we can help to create a unique holiday to India that is tailored exactly to your requirements.
