Overview
What to Expect
After breakfast, you will visit Taj Mahal It is best seen at different times of the day when the white marble reflects the nuances of the changing light from the sun. Described by poet laureate, Rabindranath Tagore as “a teardrop on the cheek of eternity”, the Taj Mahal is a mausoleum and a symbol of the enduring love of Emperor Shah Jahan for his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died during childbirth in 1631.

Legend has it that she bound him with a deathbed promise to build her the most beautiful tomb ever known. It is said that 20,000 stone carvers, masons, and artists from across India and as far as Turkey and Iraq were employed under a team of architects to build the Taj Mahal in the lush gardens on the banks of Agra’s Yamuna River.

It took them from 1631 to 1648 to complete the epic task. Today, the mausoleum is an important place of pilgrimage since the empress died in childbirth, making her a martyr.

After this, you will visit Agra Fort 

You will drive to one of the most significant monuments of the city, the Agra Fort (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). 

When the Mughal Emperor Akbar established his supremacy in northern India, he began his first architectural venture, rebuilding the Agra Fort as a beautiful fort-palace. The work was completed by his son and grandson, highlighting the Mughals’ ability to blend defensive and decorative architecture. Richly decorated with marble and mosaic, it was in a part of this fort that Shah Jahan spent the last years of his life, imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. His private quarters, where he was confined, has a magical view of the ‘Taj Mahal’ across the River Yamuna

After this, you will enjoy street food walk Agra is justly famous for Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world. But a visit to Agra is not really complete without enjoying it’s local cuisine via a food tour. A food walk in Agra before or after a trip to Taj Mahal is a perfect way to spend a day there. This food tour is more than just a simple food tasting experience. It takes you to some of the oldest and best food places in old Agra city where you taste the food, learn about it’s details, enjoy a walk through the lively streets and have a fully authentic experience of city exploration on foot.
