Day 2: Delhi – Agra
Have an early breakfast and after which, leave for Agra via road (4 hours journey). Enroute, you would be making a halt to explore one of the finest creations of the Mughals; Sikandra. Named as Sikandar, it is actually the mausoleum of the Great Mughal ruler, Akbar. The design of this fascinating structure boasts of a perfect blending of Islamic, Jain, Buddhist, Christian and Hindu themes. After this, come back on your course to Agra.
Upon your arrival at Agra, check in to a pre-booked hotel. Rest for a while following which you would be taken on a sightseeing tour of the historic Agra city. First in the list would be the wonder of the world, the beautiful Taj Mahal. This legendary white marble structure was built by another great Mughal ruler, Shah Jahan in commemoration of his love for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Every day, the Taj receives a huge influx of tourists from all over the globe.
In the latter half of our sightseeing trip, guests would be admiring the majestic Agra Fort and Itmad-ud-Daula’s tomb. Both of these structures hold great significance for the city’s heritage. Evenings are meant for some local shopping. Feel free to explore the whereabouts of the local market, buying souvenirs and handicrafts.
