Visiting the Taj


Can anyone recommend the best way to get to Agra from Delhi and any budget hotels in either Delhi and Agra? Also are there any 'must see' tourist attractions in either city aside from the Taj?

There are 2 options to get to Agra from Delhi---

1-Travel by train Bhopal Shatabdi Express...takes 2 hours...starts at 6.00 am from Delhi.

2-Travel by car through Yamuna Express way takes 3-4 hours one way from Delhi to Agra.

You can choose either way for traveling.

In Agra there is lot to see besides Taj Mahal,Agra Fort,Akbar Tomb at Sikandra,Tomb of Itimad ud daulah(baby Taj) and Fatehpur Sikri(40 kms away from Agra)

Delhi has lot to offer--Humayuns Tomb,Qutub Minar,Jama Masjid(Mosque),Red Fort,Parliamentary Buildings,Raj Ghat(Mahatma Gandhi Memorial).

There are many budget hotels in Agra-----Taj Resort,Amar HotelHoward Park Plaza,Royal Residency.

For hotels in Delhi search in the box above corner or Google it.

Thanks and Regards

Post No.-1 have already explained you about the travelling mode and attraction places at each destination.

Regarding Hotel in Delhi - If your budget is under INR 2500/- then go for White Klove, Aura De Asia luxury living, if its under Rs. 2000/- then for Bonlon Inn, Rockwell Plaza in Karol bagh.

Regarding Hotel in Agra - If your budget is under INR 2400/- then go for Amar, Rajmahal & The Retreat, if its under Rs. 2000/- then for Royale Residency, Crystal Inn, Taj Galaxy & Amar Yatri Niwas.
