About Travel to Agra
Agra was the first capital city of the Mughal Empire, which controlled much of what is now India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan from the 16th to 18th Centuries. During the era of Mughal Empire an extraordinary range of grand Islamic inspired buildings were created across the region.
Arguably the best of these many buildings were the ones built in Agra, the foremost of which is the Taj Mahal competed in 1653 in homage to the deceased wife of Shah Jahan, the fifth Mughal Emperor. The Taj Mahal is a spectacular building and one which was so costly to build, with materials imported from China, Tibet, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, that the burden of taxation caused a famine in the area around Agra.
The Taj Mahal, along with the Agra Fort, the Tomb of Akbar the Great and nearby city of Fatehpur Sikri, are world class attractions and amongst the most interesting places to visit in India.
Most international visitors choose to go to Agra as a day trip from Delhi. This is partly because Agra itself is not one of India’s more pleasant cities. It’s densely populated, heavily polluted and visitors suffer from a large number of people trying to take advantage of them through overpricing and a range of other confidence tricks. The city also a reputation for being somewhere you go to get food poisoning.
Despite the downsides of Agra, it is however well worth going there to stay overnight. The Taj Mahal in particular changes in appearance as the light changes, and viewed at sunset alongside the Yumuna River, with parrots and giant fruit bats in the skies, it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. When visiting Agra it is worth investing in one of the more expensive hotels with a rooftop bar and restaurant where you can enjoy a view of the Taj Mahal insulated from the busy city below.
