The Taj Mahal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, admired for its beautiful Mughal architecture. One of the 7 Wonders of the World, this mausoleum was commissioned by Shah Jahan for his wife in 1631. Spend time walking around and admiring the minarets, fountains, and adjoining gardens. A sunrise visit is highly recommended for a memorable experience and to avoid crowds.
For additional sightseeing, the Agra Fort is another stunning display of architecture. The majestic red-walled fort is spread out on 94 acres, about 2 miles away from the Taj Mahal. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, this site used to be the home to Mughal emperors before Delhi became the capital of India. Walk around the distinctive halls, Diwan-i-Am and Diwan-i-khaas, and observe the ornate mirror work in Sheesh Mahal.
