Three of the world’s top sites beckon from this bustling and vibrant city in Uttar Pradesh, once the capital of the mighty Mughal empire. Most visitors come to the city of 1.4 million to see 1653’s testament to love, the stunning, symmetrical Taj Mahal, built by a grieving emperor for his queen. The other main tourist destinations are the sandstone Red Fort, which dates back to 1565 and contains many marvelous palaces and halls, and Fatehpur Sikri, a fort built by Mughal Emperor Akbar. Attractions:

Taj Mahal – The Immortal Signature of Love

There is no other monument in the world, which can match the beauty and grandeur of the Taj Mahal. Set amongst the serene ambience of a well laid out garden, the massive marble structure of the Taj is awe-inspiring.

The Taj Mahal was built in the 17th century by Shahjahan- the fifth Mughal emperor, in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Golden Pavilions

The curved chala roofs of the small pavilions by the Khaas Mahal are based on the roof shape of Bengali village huts constructed out of curved bamboo, designed to keep off heavy rain. The shape was first expressed in stone by the Sultans of Bengal. Originally gilded, these were probably ladies’ bedrooms, with hiding places for jewellery in the walls.

Agra Fort

Built by the great Emperor Akbar in 1565 AD the fort is a masterpiece of design and construction. Within the fort are a number of exquisite buildings, including the Moti Masjid, Diwane-E-Am, Diwani-E-Khaas and Musanman Burj, where the Emperor Shah Jahan died while in imprisonment.
