Agra

Discover iconic Agra

Known globally as the home of the ultimate testament to love, the inimitable Taj Mahal, the story of Agra begins much earlier than the construction of this extraordinary monument.

Capital of the Mughal Empire, during the 16th and 17th centuries, Agra is home to some of the finest architectural achievements of this remarkable dynasty. As such, it forms the third apex of the Golden Triangle, a popular itinerary that takes in some of India’s famed architectural highlights.

Agra is situated along the banks of the Yamuna River and most of its historical monuments overlook this waterway. It is home to three World Heritage Sites; The Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and the nearby Fatehpur Sikri.
