About agra

Rising on the banks of the river Yamuna, the city of Agra has been linked with the history of India, since ancient times. This beautiful city is a perfect example of India’s rich culture and heritage. It is mentioned in the epic tale Mahabharata as ‘Agrevana,' literally translated as ‘border of the forest.' Home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal, Agra is a globetrotter’s haven. You can say that the Mughals have left a permanent impression on this city which is evident in the various mausoleums and forts found here. \r\n\r\nBe mesmerized by the sprawling and majestic Agra Fort. Its many palaces, mosques, and mausoleums are a proud testimonial of Mughal architecture. The legends of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and his fabled courtiers are still kept alive at the ruins of Fatehpur Sikri, which is located on the outskirts of Agra. The chowks (marketplaces) and alleyways found in the city are usually the hub of many activities. Years ago, all the artisans and craftsmen who toiled to make the Taj Mahal a reality set up their houses nearby, creating the network of alleyways known as Taj Ganj.\r\n\r\n\r\n
