The majestic Agra is a contradiction, luring agape tourists in by their droves to the shining domes of the eternal monument to love, the Taj Mahal, a magical temple sculpted by one man’s devotion to conserving a legacy and the dearest memory of his third wife.

Tours that include Agra
There is more to see in Agra thhan the iconic Taj, though you’ll find yourself drawn to its carpeted lawns and intricate marble work more than once. Often overlooked and skipper over for bigger names, the Tomb of I’timad ud Daulah is an expression of artistic tranquillity, built in the early 16th century and every bit as opulent as the Taj, often dubbed Baby Taj by affectionate locals.
After feasting your eyes on walls encrusted with gorgeous jewels and stones, change speeds and visit Agra Fort, a must see on the India trail and enraptured in its own immortalised love story. As you tour its mosques and halls, learn more about the ardent Shah Jahan and the treasured Mumtaz, smiling as you catch clear glimpses of the Taj across the way. Agra, for all of its dusty table manners and ramshackle lifestyle is the home of romance. Fall under its sway.
