On Arrival in Agra, our tour guide will meet you then proceed to visit the famous Taj Mahal built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. This monument is made of white marble, and it took 22 years to be built.
The Taj Mahal is the epitome of Mughal art and one of the most famous buildings in the world. Yet there have been few serious studies of it and no full analysis of its architecture and meaning. Ebba Koch, an important scholar, has been permitted to take measurements of the complex and has been working on the palaces and gardens of Shah Jahan for thirty years and on the Taj Mahal itself—the tomb of the emperor's wife, Mumtaz Mahal—for a decade. It was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 17th century for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is also a seventh wonder in the World. (Taj Mahal remain Closed on Friday)
Later proceed to Agra Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where you can witness the best view of the Taj Mahal from a little octagonal tower that lies across the Yamuna River. Known also as Lal Qila, Fort Rouge or the Red fort of Agra because of the red-sandstone it was made of, it was the seat of Mughal Empire. The construction started with the orders of Akbar in 1565, Shah Jahan constructed the main buildings and Aurangzeb built up the ramparts. Agra Fort is a UNESCO world heritage located 2km northwest of Taj Mahal. Agra Fort is situated at 94 acres (34 Hectare) land. The monument exhibits Hindu and Islamic architectures.

The other side of the Taj across the river Yamuna where Mughal History has been written in edicts of stone, the river Yamuna lined with the residences of mobility was the artery, the very lifeline, which fostered the development of Mughal Agra. By weaving together these heritage relics a historic experiences of Mughal Agra has been created as "Kachhpura Tourist village".
