Sightseeing Beyond The Taj Mahal – Visit Fascinating Agra!

Sightseeing Beyond The Taj Mahal – Visit Fascinating Agra!

Agra is a fascinating city. Capital of the Mughal Empire for a hundred and thirty years, Agra is endowed with beautiful archaeological sites of immense historic significance. The first of these that comes to mind is, of course the Taj Mahal. The beauty and fame of the Taj is so widespread that visitors often make day trips from Delhi exclusively to visit this glorified tomb and return immediately. But there’s so much more to Agra than the Taj Mahal; so I got myself an Agra tour guide and set off to explore this intriguing city.

My first stop was Agra Fort. This fortress was originally a brick structure from the 10th century. When the Mughals took it over, it got its new and present avatar of red sandstone under Emperor Akbar.
