I was lucky to visit this amazing architecture and huge gardens with beautiful peacocks and lovely deers running around and four minarets at the main entrance gate of this magnificent architectural heritage. Really worth visiting sight in Agra.

This has been my favourite place so far in India. I haven’t heard of this but as we had a driver from New Delhi to Agra we decided to visit. The grounds are well kept and the buildings were were stunning.

Akbar's mausoleum is a impressive building within a wonderful courtyard with many blackbucks and other antelopes/deers. Already the gateway is stunning. I loved the calm atmosphere there as this place is less crowed than other touristical highlights in Agra.
