Culture of agra

Agra has a unique cultural heritage, influenced a lot by the Mughals who had transformed this city into a centre of commerce, art and learning. Due to its proximity to Mathura and Vrindavan, we can also find influences of Brij culture in Agra. The city hosts a medley of festivals. The Taj Mahotsav is conducted to promote local arts and crafts. The Taj Literature Festival brings together the icons of the literary world from around the globe, in Agra. A lot of traditional celebrations are also held in the city like Ram Barat and Kailash Fair.\n\nA harmonious blend of all these cultures are reflected in the beautiful handicrafts, made painstakingly, by the craftsmen of this city. Hindustani classical music flourished in Agra, under the patronage of the Mughals. The city is also known for its folk dance Ramlila, a re-enactment of the Sanskrit epic Ramayana. Kathak is another dance form that is performed in Agra. Most of the people enjoy Mughlai and North Indian cuisine.
