    It was worth the visit. Guess, I need not elaborate about the beauty or history of the monument, which is familiar. Was staying at Noida. Made a rough inquiry about the timings. The monument opens for the public 30min prior to the sunrise and closes after 30min of sunset. Its always better to reach the monument before sunrise on a couple of counts. First, the light will be conducive for photography. Second, there wont be much people around and you'll be able to enjoy the beauty better. A word of caution for the travelers: the guides around there play several games to lure you in. You can hire one for around Rs.300 which is fair. The modus operandi of the guides is interesting. First, one person claiming to be authorized by the govt approaches you and demands Rs.1500/- just to check for how much you're willing. And, you'll be telling some amount. This person will not be coming anyway. However, when you take a few steps, another person approaches you and agrees for the amount you're willing. You can get the tickets for the building online. For entering the mausoleum, an additional amount will be charged. Not much good eateries around. So, better to take care of these things before you reach here. Just go through the details of the monument in the net just before your visit and you'll enjoy more.

    The architecture of the fort reflects the 3 major dynasties. This fort is well known for pride, power and resilience since ancient time. This fort resembles the lavish life of Mughals. The fort is constructed with the elite elements like Belgian glass and premium sandstone etc. T

    We visited the elephant sanctuary only, but would have definitely visited the bear sanctuary as well if we would have had more time. It was such a great experience to see the animals and witnes the care and compassion the team there provides to these intelligent and emphatic animals.

    This somewhat ridiculous nickname - the 'Baby Taj' - really does not describe the beauty of this exquisite little mausoleum on the eastern bank of the Yamuna. The first Mughal tomb to be built of white marble, this beautiful tomb was constructed by the Empress Noorjehan between 1622-28 CE, for her father Ghiyas Begh 'Itmad-ud-Daulah' (a title meaning 'pillar of the state'). It is believed that, along with the Tomb of Humayun in Delhi, this was one of the precursors of the Taj Mahal.

    Tickets for Itmad-ud-Daulah cost Rs 20 per adult (Indian); children up to twelve go free. You buy tickets at the gate, then walk up to the main gate of the monument, a magnificent structure of red sandstone covered with white marble pietra dura inlay. Through this gate, and you enter a typical Mughal charbagh, a square garden bisected by water channels (currently dry), with the mausoleum sitting in the middle, where the channels meet. Like the gate through which you entered, there are similar gates in the centre of each of the walls forming the boundary of the charbagh. The fourth gate, beyond the tomb, is the river gate, a pavilion offering a great view of the Yamuna.

    You have to take off your shoes (there's a rack in one corner) to climb up to the platform (there are steps, but also a ramp, so it's wheelchair accessible). The tomb is stunning, lots of lovely inlay work, paintings, and even some carved white marble.

    Great views of the Taj without any crowds. But the park has poor access. Parking is bit far, you might want to take a battery operated rickshaw. Park is poorly maintained. A wasted opportunity

    The staff is very polite , and the presentation was great. It’s was nice to see the way they work. I think prices were a bit in the higher side but that also comes with quality.

    We were taken here for a demonstration of marble inlay work. It was interesting to see how this was done and we were then given the opportunity to buy a piece, shipping included.

    Dayal Bagh seemed a welcome change- a Remarkably calm and peaceful oasis in midst of madness of the bustling city of Agra. The newly completed temple is worth a visit

    Akbar had built several palaces in the Agra Fort, and his son and successor Jahangir had added to them. These comprise the Jahangiri Mahal and Akbari Mahal, both approached through a beautiful gate decorated with red sandstone and yellow dholpur stone. The palaces inside are small, made almost completely of red sandstone, very intricately carved, and with some traces of beautiful painted and incised plaster.

    The Agra Fort ticket, Rs 35 per Indian adult, covers these palaces. An interesting artefact just outside the gate here is Jahangir's bath tub, shaped like a giant tea cup with rough steps on the side to climb in.

    The precursor to the Diwan-e-Aam at Delhi's Red Fort, this one is a massive pillared pavilion, fronted by a large garden. This was where the emperor would meet the general public, so to say: ambassadors, people offering tributes and gifts, people beating petitions, and people he was rewarding. In addition, horses or elephants were paraded here before the emperor, among other more showy elements of state.

    The pillared hall is fairly bare, but the white marble throne area has some lovely inlay work. In front of the Diwan-e-Aam, in two separate enclosures of their own, are remnants of British rule in India: a British cannon, and the tomb of John Russell Colvin, lieutenant governor of the North-Western Provinces, who died of cholera in 1857.

    My wife and I visited the Jama Masjid as part of a Golden Triangle tour with the TripaDeal group in February.

    It was very interesting, but you must remove your shoes, women have to wear long gowns and men, if wearing shorts, have to wear a "wrap". These are hired at the entrance.

    It has very interesting architecture and was very busy, with a few different entrances.

    Well worth visiting the largest mosque in India.

    Shri Mankameshwar Temple in Agra is one of the ancient temples devoted to Lord Shiva and is located close to Agra Fort Railway Station. One has to descend a few stairs to reach the sanctum sanctorum. Devotees require to be in traditional Indian dress such as Dhoti or Saree to enter the Sanctum. It is said that the Shiva Linga is covered by silver metal and was founded by the Lord Himself during Dwapara era. A must go for every devotee visiting the city.
