Is Agra sightseeing posible on Holi (March 27,2013)?

Hello Friends,

I am planning to see the sights in Agra with my family on March 27th of this month which is a Holi day. Please let me know if it is possible ?

I will be booking a cab for the whole day. And I have a train in the evening at around 5:30 pm. Will my plan work?

Thank you in advance. :-)

I suggest you to plan your visit at noon time to the Taj Mahal and other monuments....or early morning at the Taj if possible....it opens at the time of sunrise every day...which keeps on changing every day.

Thanks

You can plan your day and tourist vehicles are not disturbed and ply normaly. There is all ways police presence on roads leading towards monuments.

its better to hire a cab from the station as the drivers are familier with the things in city.moreover i can suggest you to hire a guide as he can manuplate your schedule according to your timings...

everything is safe in city as the administration is strict during the festival time....

so no need to worry nd go ahead with your plans.....

I have one more question. Please suggest me on this too.

How good it will be to visit Fatehpur Sikri on 27th?

I mean, I want to spend whole of my time in Fatehpur Sikri only & be there at Cantt. railway station by @4.30 pm. So, how should I plan for that ? Please suggest considering traffic & other conditions.

Thanks !!

There is going to be very less traffic ....no transportation...need to arrange your own...either do Agra or Fatehpur Sikri...need to choose one .

You can travel by cab to Fatehpur Sikri and better to leave early morning.
