If the Taj Mahal is on the top of your list of places to visit then you’ll definitely be booking a flight to Agra. Once the capital of the Mughal Empire, this medieval city is today one of the most visited destinations in India – if not the world. With a history dating back to the 16th century, Agra’s story is a fascinating one. The third Mughal emperor, Akbar, came to power when he was only 13. He made many great contributions during his reign including banning the slaughter of cows, making Agra the capital in 1566 and commissioning some of the most extraordinary buildings in India.

While most travellers would rather drive from Delhi than take a flight to Agra, it’s worth spending a couple of days exploring its other fascinating sites. The Itmad-Ud-Daulah tomb – otherwise known as “The Baby Taj” – sits on the banks of the river Yamuna directly across the Taj Mahal. Built in 1628 as a tomb for Mirza Ghiyath Beg the monument adorns some of the best examples of Persian motifs and pietra duras. The Unesco site – Agra Fort – is another sight not to be missed while in Agra. The walled red fortress is home to some exquisite attractions including Jahangiri Palace, Khas Mahal and Anguri Bagh garden.

Getting around Agra

Hire a car and driver for your day in Agra and travel worry free. There are also many private tours in the area. The U.P. State Tourism Development Corporation offers tours at all the major sites. If you’d rather venture out on your own, don’t rent your own car. Driving in any Indian city is not recommended. Instead, travel by taxi or rickshaw – auto or bicycle. Make sure your haggling skills are sharpened before you board though. With the high number of tourists in Agra, drivers often quote ridiculously high prices. Don’t be afraid to haggle. Also, watch out for unplanned stops along your route. Drivers sometimes get a commission for bringing their passengers to local shops. 

Rent a bike and try pedalling your way around Agra. There are rental shops all over and powering your own way around the city can be helpful since motorised vehicles are not allowed in the Taj Sanctuary.
