There are many cultural attractions in and around Agra, which include the Taj Mahal (one of the Seven Wonders of the World), the Agra Fort, the Chini Ka Rauza (a famous tomb), and much more.

            The Taj Mahal is not only one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but also a World Heritage Site.   As ordered by Muslim Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, it was built during the first half of the 17 th Century by over 20,000 workers.   Its beauty has inspired countless artists, and its fame has attracted millions of visitors over the years.   Still today, the Taj Mahal is considered to be the world’s finest example of Mughal architecture.  

            The Agra Fort is often overshadowed by its famous neighbor, the Taj Mahal.   However, as a World Heritage Site, the Agra fort is quite spectacular and worth visiting.   Constructed in the 12 th Century, the fort is seeped in history, but even after having survived wars and political turmoil, the fort remains in good condition.

            The Chini Ka Rouza is a monument that is often overlooked by tourists.   It is an ancient tomb that was built in 1635, where laid to rest was Allama Afzal Khan Mullah of Shiraz , who was the Prime Minister of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan.
