Agra, home to the world-famous Taj Mahal… but there’s more! It would be a mistake to believe that Agra is exclusively known for the World Wonder Taj Mahal. This city is around 200 kilometers from Delhi, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It does have a rich historical heritage, as seen by the numerous and diverse monuments in and around the city center.
The Taj Mahal is a symbol of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s unending love for his adored wife, Mumtaz. It will, without a doubt, be the first and most unforgettable aspect of your vacation to Agra. You will have enough opportunity to explore the white-marble tomb and snap photographs throughout the trip.
The Mughal Emperor Akbar constructed the Agra Fort out of red sandstones between 1565 and 1573, but it took the four Emperors 95 years to finish. For over a century, it was the capital of the Mughal Empire.
Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daula:
Itimad-ud-Daula, commonly known as the “Baby Taj Mahal,” was erected for the Mughal Emperor Jahangir’s father by his wife, Nur Jahan. It is frequently referred to as the “Baby Taj Mahal” since it is claimed to have acted as a draught for the Taj Mahal, which was erected later.
The mausoleum of Mughal Emperor Akbar, Shah Jahan’s grandfather and the architect of the Taj Mahal, is housed in this monument. The monument’s architecture is stunning, with red sandstone and white marble combining to create a magnificent structure.
