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.

 Tajmahal Tour TajMahal

Agra has always fascinated tourists from across the world with its extraordinary ‘Taj Mahal’ and I am no exception. In fact, it is one place in India where I can go millions of times. The beauty and aura of Taj Mahal and other places of interest near this Mughal city have something special about them which bring me here time and again. This time I had come to this world famous city with my colleagues. They were visiting Agra for the first time and I for the fifth time.

After an easy train journey of two and a half hours we reached Agra from Delhi in the late evening. Agra is the most visited tourist destination of India and is also a part of the Golden Triangle Tour (the most famous tour of India). The Golden Triangle Tour is very famous among international tourists. We were booked in the Mansingh Palace Hotel which is one of the finest hotels here. This hotel got its name from the Rajput Emperor Sawai Mansingh who was a very close associate of Mughal Emperor Akbar. We visited Taj Mahal in the early morning to catch the glimpses of this incredible monument in the first gleam of morning rays.

Taj Mahal is considered the finest masterpiece of Mughal architecture and is recognized as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is also a World Heritage Site. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is a mausoleum located on the west bank of river Yamuna. This grand edifice was completed in 20 years and around 20,000 workers worked day and night to make it what it is today.

The interiors of this majestic monument were studded with more than 28 types of precious and semi-precious stones. The architecture of Taj Mahal is a fabulous synthesis of Indian and Persian styles. Its lattice work, inlay decorations, calligraphic representations and incised painting deserve special mention. The calligraphy of this monument mainly consists of the verses and passages from the holy book of Kuran.

After admiring the beauty of Taj Mahal we sat in the garden surrounding the monument for some time. It was truly such a refreshing experience to visit Taj Mahal. We enjoyed eating at the local shops in the market. We also bought petha, the famous sweet of this city. And then we shopped for leather ware, marble statues, carpets and artificial jewelry at bargained rates from the bazaar. It was such a delight!
