At sunrise, watch the glorious Taj Mahal and admire its enchanting beauty. The white mausoleum is an epitome of beauty and craftsmanship of the highest order. Take as many pictures as you want to fill up your album of memories. After this amazing sighting return to the hotel for breakfast and later continue your tour.
Visit the historic Agra Fort that comprises four gates including the Delhi Gate which is widely and justifiably considered an architectural masterpiece. Later visit the Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah which is often called ‘Baby Taj’. This elegant structure consists of some marvelous outbuildings and gardens. Widely regarded as an initial draft of the Taj Mahal, this mausoleum was commissioned by Emperor Jahangir’s wife Nur Jahan for her father.
After savoring a wholesome lunch, visit Fatehpur Sikri which houses many interesting structures. This city was founded and named the capital of the Mughal Empire by Emperor Akbar. The city got its name from a village called Sikri that occupied this place. Explore intricate structures like Jama Masjid, Jodha Bai Palace, Birbal Bhawan, Panch Mahal, Pachisi Court, Buland Darwaza, etc at Fatehpur Sikri before returning to Agra city.
In the evening you can visit the markets for collecting souvenirs or check out other shopping options. Agra is renowned for traditional clothes and footwear. Your tour concludes as you reach the hotel for an overnight stay.
