The tour itinerary goes as follows:
Pick up from Delhi:
Our representative will meet you at Delhi International Airport or your hotel in Delhi, from where we shall drive towards Agra on Yamuna Expressway. In three hours, we shall reach Agra to visit our first destination, the Taj Mahal.
Taj Mahal has been spoken and written about a lot, yet, no words can describe the beauty and historical importance of this magnificent monument. Located beautifully on the banks of River Yamuna, the monument gets its name from the lady it was built for – Mumtaj Mahal. She was the Mughal Queen, known for her stunning beauty. And to honour the true love, her husband Shah Jahan built this monument to dedicate as a symbol of love.
Taj Mahal is a massive monument built in symmetry. It looks identical from all corners and is surrounded by a huge corridor with four minarets on each corner. Located within the Taj Complex are the graves of the King and the Queen, who were buried there as per the last wish of Shah Jahan.
Taj Mahal is important travel destination for many reasons. First, it is one of the finest examples of architecture. Second, it is a dedication of a husband for his wife, thus Taj Mahal is counted as a Symbol of Love. And for these two reasons, the monument is included amongst the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’.
Yet another architectural marvel is Baby Taj, called so because it’s a replica of its bigger version. Baby Taj is the tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula. The monument has its importance for its historical value and stunning architecture.
After visiting these two places, we shall enter the Bon Barbeque Restaurant for a buffet lunch. After lunch, rest for some time before resuming your journey.
Next destination in our list is Agra Fort, the Royal Museum of Mughal Empire. Located at a distance of 2.5km from its more popular sister building Taj Mahal, Agra Fort was built as the capital and residence of the Mughal Emperors. One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Agra Fort was later converted into a museum. It houses innumerable belongings of the erstwhile rulers.
Visit these places and then be prepared for checkout. Our representative will ride you back in a car to Delhi where you will be dropped to your hotel or Indira Gandhi International Airport. Perfect Agra Tours thanks you for being a wonderful traveller.
