Agra boasts of a great Mughal legacy that can be witnessed in the form of the magnificent Agra Fort. A day spent in Agra would leave an indelible impression on your memory!
The Taj Mahal: The Taj Mahal needs no introduction. It is known all over the world as a 'symbol of love'. Rabindranath Tagore described it as 'a teardrop on the cheek of eternity', Rudyard Kipling as 'the embodiment of all things pure', while its creator, Emperor Shah Jahan, said it made 'the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes' . It is believed that the Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his deceased wife Mumtaz.
Agra Fort: It is a massive red sandstone fort built by Emperor Akbar in the year 1565 on the banks of the river Yamuna. It is one of the finest forts in the country. The fort was built primarily as a military structure, but Shah Jahan transformed it into a palace, and later it became his gilded prison for eight years after his son Aurangzeb seized power in 1658.
