Typica EvelWhat to expect
1. The Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal has been recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Listen as your guide tells you fascinating tales about the history of this symbol of India. Shah Jahan commissioned the 20-year construction of the marble tomb with a dome in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Your tour guide will tell you about the Mughal masterpiece and its Persian architecture.
2. Agra Fort
The Agra Fort was built using Islamic and Hindu design elements. The fort, made of red sandstone, was erected by Emperor Akbar on the Yamuna River’s banks. Take a tour of the complex and marvel at Shah Jahan’s additions, such as the public Diwan-I-Am and the private Diwan-I-Khas.
3. Sikandra/Akbar’s Tomb
Located on the western outskirts of the city, the tomb was begun by Emperor Akbar and finished by his son Jahangir out of red sandstone and marble. The inner walls are decorated with beautiful calligraphy that depicts the beliefs of Din-e-Ilahi, a religion founded by Emperor Akbar on the synthesis of principally Hinduism and Islam, along with other religions. The tomb of the Mughal emperor Akbar can be found in this crypt in Sikandra. There is also a garden in the vicinity, designed in the Char Bagh style.
Queen Noor Jahan commissioned the construction of this tomb on the Yamuna River’s eastern bank. The Baby Taj got its name because of the yellow, black, and white marble inlay that went into its construction. This tomb, commissioned by Empress Noor Jahan in 1623–28 A.D. and dedicated to her father, Mirza Ghias Beg, is a design and construction masterpiece. This elaborate tomb was an inspiration for the Taj Mahal. It’s cladded entirely in white marble, which gives it a stunning sheen.
5. Mehtab Bagh
Mehtab Bagh may be found on the other side of the Taj Mahal, on the left bank of the Yamuna. Emperor Babur constructed this park as the eleventh and final section of his park system along the Yamuna River. On the other side, the Taj Mahal aligns with the square garden complex, which measures roughly 300 by 300 meters (980 feet by 980 feet). The excavation uncovered an enormous octagonal tank in the building’s central area and a doorway in the northern wall. The huge tomb may now be seen from one of the excellent vantage points.
