Things to see in Agra

The city of Agra is located in the state Uttar Pradesh and is most famous for its Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal is open every day, except on Mondays, so it is worth checking on which day you will visit it. The Taj Mahal was built by the king Shah Jahan as the final resting place for his wife. It is finished with marble and has become the monument that everybody from over the whole world associates with India. Close to the main entrance there are several hotels which have a rooftop restaurant. From there you are able to look onto the Taj.

Another big attraction is the red fort which is not be missed as it is one of the best decorated forts and beats most others in Rajasthan. The fort is a more of a complex and consists of several buildings such as the Delhi gate, the Diwan I Am and Machchi Bhawan. Besides this there are several courtyard, temples and an Indian garden. Besides the red fort and the Taj Mahal there is not that much to see. Both sights are quite a bit apart, but if you have the time, it can be walked. Otherwise you can be transported by rickshaw or by horse an carriage.

Visiting Agra can be done on a day trip from
 Delhi, but you will spent much time driving and short time visiting. More comfortable is to take the train and stay a night in Agra. An easy day trip from Agra is the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri.
