On last weekend, I with Adey, my best travel buddy left for Agra. From Delhi, we hired a car and moved ahead. It was my first visit to Taj so I was more excited than Adey. We started early in the morning and within an hour, we were enjoying the view of gorgeous landscapes along with cool wind. Experiencing the views of the limitless sky was something, I cannot forget.

On our trip to Agra, everything was looking magical. The roadways, the moving sky and the beautiful sites, everything seemed like inviting us for a memorable experience. After another an hour, we had a halt for lunch. Though the food was simple yet great.

Thinking of Taj Mahal Agra, we reached the border of the city. Having heard a lot about the beauty and architecture of this world heritage monument, I was elated. Built by Shah Jahan, this monument has extraordinary charm that can make anyone wonder. The king constructed Taj in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Of course, we could see how beautifully built it was!

And there we were, standing in front of Taj Mahal and wondering on the glory of this outstanding structure. Agra tourism is all about witnessing the outstanding architecture of Mughal style. The architecture speaks volume about the meticulously efforts by the skilled artisans of that time. With its minarets and majestic elevation, the Taj Mahal looks simply breathtaking. Exquisitely combined, the gorgeous garden further enhances its appeal.

Our travel to Agra was packed with fun and wonderful memories as after having our food, we could also enjoy the fascinating site of Taj during sunset. It seemed like changing its backdrop. With its remarkable architecture, it appears like more of a work of beauty than merely a Mughal mausoleum.

After our Tour to Taj Mahal, we headed for Agra Fort. We sat and relaxed for a while and strolled around for sometime. Lies on the bank of river Yamuna, the Agra Fort stands as a stronghold of the past. Constructed in red stone, the Agra fort sprawls across two km and is encircled by a huge wall that adds glory to the structure. It has the two gates to enter, named as the Delhi Gate and the Amar Singh Gate.

Our tour to Agra concluded and we were all set to off to Delhi with an eagerness to share that memorable experience with our friends.

With every word, a pearl cocooned in love will fall…

Agra, the greatest pride of India Tourism, is a place that can be visited time and again. The monotony of my daily life was taking a toll on my sanity and I really needed, at least, a short break . So I and one of my friends, Shivani, decided to go to Agra. I had been to this wonderland once, when I was in school. Memories of my past visit filled my heart with joy.

Agra is a historic city with treasure-like attractions in its sleeves. Once the capital of the Mughals, Agra is an important destination of the Golden Triangle Tour circuit. Synonymous with Taj Mahal, this city attracts tourists from across the globe.

We reached Agra early morning and were booked in the Mansingh Palace Hotel. The hotel is named after Rajput Emperor Sawai Mansingh, a very close associate of Mughal Emperor Akbar. Post breakfast, we set out to see Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. The breathtaking sight of Taj Mahal surrounded by beautiful lush green gardens festooned with fountains was such a rejuvenation to my sore eyes.

The interesting facts about this incredible monument are: the interiors were studded with precious and semi-precious stones, the architectural style is based on interlocking arabesque concept and uses the principles of self-replicating geometry. Its inlay work of floral designs and calligraphy are mesmerizing. The arresting structure is a perfect amalgamation of Mughal, Persian, Central Asian, and Islamic architecture. In fact, everything about this ‘wonder’ is fascinating and intriguing. This most sparkling jewel of India is soaked in glorious history.

After visiting Taj Mahal, we decided to go for lunch and then shopping. From here we head to Clark Shiraz, the five star hotel, to have lunch in its wonderful restaurant. We dined at its roof-top restaurant, the Mughal Rooms, and enjoyed the bewitching views of Taj Mahal along with the lip-smacking dishes.

Post lunch, we invested a few hours in shopping. Agra is famous for its inlay work, marble articles, leatherware, brassware, carpets and jewellery. We explored the Sadar Bazar and Kinari Bazar and bought some wonderful handicrafts. After shopping we traced our steps back to the hotel. We chatted till late night and finally forced ourselves to retired to bed as we had to leave the next day to cover the rest of the attractions of Agra.
