AGRA




Located on the banks of River Yamuna in Uttar Pradesh, Agra is a popular tourist destination as it is home to one of the 7 wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal. It is a sneak peek into the architectural history and legacy of the Mughal empire with two other UNESCO World Heritage Sites Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. History, architecture, romance all together create the magic of Agra, and hence, makes for a must-visit for anyone living in or visiting India.

Apart from its monuments, Agra has some exciting stuff for foodies. It is as famous for its Petha (a sweet made from pumpkin and flavoured with rose water and saffron) as it is for the Taj Mahal. Agra is also well known for its marble artefacts which are best bought in the Sadar Bazaar or Kinaari Bazaar area.

The ‘Land of Taj Mahal’ and the City of Pethas’, Agra is inarguably one of the most-visited travel destinations in India. Be it the historical sites that take tourists back to the rich Mughal history, bustling streets, vibrant shopping markets to buy some amazing stuff, and the lip-smacking fares to treat your taste buds with indelible tastes, Agra offers a memorable vacation in all senses
