About Travel to Agra
Agra forms part of the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Indian tourism, along with Delhi and Jaipur and the location of India’s most iconic building, the Taj Mahal. Modern day Agra, with a population of around 1.6 million permanent residents, is in economic and political terms one of India’s less important cities. In the 16th Century, however, Agra was the capital city of the Mughal Empire which controlled most of South Asia and Afganistan. As the capital city of one of greatest empires that has ever existed Agra received the benefitted from massive investment in striking public buildings. Initially these buildings where functional, like Agra Fort the contruction of which commenced in 1565, and later as the Mughal Empire took a firmer hold its territories the building became ornamental, like the magnificent Taj Mahal completed in 1653.
A minority of the tourists who come to Agra choose to stay overnight, and those which do generally want to stay somewhere near the Taj Mahal, and that’s where most of the better hotels and restaurants are located. Agra is very close to Delhi and its easy to visit Agra on a day trip from the capital. Agra has a reputation for being dirty, polluted and with a high rate of petty thefts and scams. Because of the large number of tourists who come to visit the Taj Mahal the city attracts a criminal element and the local environment suffers also as a consequence of the large number of visitors. Nonetheless, it’s well worth staying ovenright in Agra. Buildings like the Taj Mahal undergo subtle changes in appearance as the light changes, and walking around the monuments as the sunset sets, and most of the tourists have left, offers some magical scenes with a backdrop of the wide Yamuna River and flocks of green parrot and giant fruit bats flying overhead.
