Agra is a city in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, some 200 km from the Indian capital city of Delhi. Agra has three UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort in the city and Fatehpur Sikri nearby. The sites are some of the wonders of the world and no trip to India is complete without at least one visit to the Taj. The earliest reference to Agra is in the ancient epic, the Mahabharata, while Ptolemy was the first person to call it by its modern name.
After smooth check in at the hotel and relaxing a bit, move along with Agra tour guide to visit famous monuments of Agra, namely-Agra Fort, Baby Taj (tomb of It-Mad-ud-Daula) an SUNSET VIEW OF TAJMAHAL FROM MEHTAB BAG.
Agra Fort : The fort is built alongside the Yamuna River and stretches almost 2.5 km. It consists of a wall built in red sandstone and several buildings inside. The wall has 2 gates, the Delhi Gate and the Amar Singh Gate.
Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula : Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula houses the magnificent mausoleum of Ghias Beg, father of the Mughal Empress Noor Jehan. The main tomb is made of pure white marble, with each façade composed of three arches with beautiful trellis screens, so delicately carved that they appear to be made of ivory.
Having visited Baby Taj, you will be taken to Mehtab Bag to view Taj Mahal at the time of sunset as it offers a different pleasant view.
Taj View from Mehtab Bag is a unique experience. Mehtab Bag is located across River Yamuna and opposite Taj Mahal. The octagonal tank of water in Mehtab Bag reflects Taj Mahal. The picturesque ‘Charbag’ style garden provide perfect setting to view Taj Mahal in moon light, away from uproarious hustle bustle of the city of Agra.
After visiting Mehtab Bag, return to hotel for overnight stay
