Tour Duration : one day
The Vacations & Journeys staff will pick you up from the discussed location and then your Same Day Agra Tour will begin. The first place where you will pay a visit will be the Agra Fort also called the Red Fort of Agra.
Agra Fort- Earlier it was known as the Badalgarh Fort and it was a brick fort. Later the Mughal Emperor Akbar reconstructed it with red sandstone and made several additions to the fort and years after, his Grandson Shah Jahan made several additions to it with white marble structures. It has several fabulous palaces and it is also a World Heritage Site.
Once the tour to the fort premises is complete, you will now move towards the Itmad-ud-Daulah for a visit to this wondrous tomb.
Itmad-ud-Daulah- Also known as Agra’s ‘baby Taj’, it is the tomb of Mirza Ghiyas beg, the father of Nur Jahan. The mausoleum is very beautifully and intricately built with white marble and precious stones were encrusted in the walls. From a beautiful entrance you will enter the premise which has gardens and the tomb. Some experts have the opinion that the Taj Mahal was inspired from this Tomb.
Then you will have the most magical moment of the day when you will have a view of the Taj Mahal from outside the premises. While entering inside the premise it will be hard for you to take your eyes off this magnificent monument.
Taj Mahal- The whole world knows about the awe-inspiring white marble beauty. Taj Mahal is actually a mausoleum and an epitome of love and passion. It was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal who died of sickness. The premises encapsulate the Mehtab Bagh and the Taj Mahal on the bank of river Yamuna. Watching the Taj Mahal during the sunrise and sunset is common among the tourists as it seems like Taj is changing colors during these times of the day and looks extremely graceful.
If the time allows you can visit the local markets and buy the miniature version of Taj to gift to your loved ones and then we will drop you to the location of your choice ending the Same Day Agra Tour.
Note: The above plan is a suggested one. Vacations & Journeys will welcome any kind of suggestions and additions from the clients and will customize this according to their requirements.
