Agra is one of the most famous cities of India. It is more famous for housing one of the most famous buildings, Taj Mahal. The building is strategically located on banks on Yamuna River. Taj Mahal is also listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The monument is also one of the three world heritage sites in Agra that includes Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri.
The Agra fort looks at Taj. It is said that when the son of Shahjahan imprisoned his father in a room which was overlooking Taj Mahal, Shahjahan used to have a look at the monument (which he built in the memory of his wife Mumtaz) and spend his time. His love for Mumtaz is exemplary.
Agra also houses a city ruined by Akbar known as the Abondoned city of Fatehpur Sikari. This is also referred to the ‘Ghost town’. This was proved unlucky for Akbar the Great Mughal King. The tourists can also try ‘petha’, one of the most popular sweets of Agra. Each day, many thousands of tourists take Same Day Taj Mahal Tour from Delhi to have a look at the beautiful monument among many others present nearby.
It is rightly said that if you don’t visit one of these world heritage monuments on visiting Delhi, then you missed something.
