Hotels in Agra India
Agra,or the city of the Taj, as it is known all over
the world, forms the first destination on the itinerary of most
travelers coming into India. Forming part of the famous 'Golden
Triangle' (Delhi-Jaipur-Agra), it is placed on the western
bank of the Yamuna.
The magnificent Taj Mahal which is the pride of this city is
set around a Charbagh or 'four garden' plan, which is split
by watercourses - a reflection of the Persian style. The Taj
Mahal itself is not set within the Charbagh but is
located towards the far end of the enclosure near the bank of
river Yamuna. The tombs of Mumtaz Mahal and Shahjahan are located
in the basement, while their replicas are placed directly above
in the upper hall.
Besides the Taj Mahal, Agra is also home to
some of the finest monuments of the Mughal period - Agra
Fort, Diwan-I-Am, Diwan-i-Khas, Musamman Burj, Jehangir's Palace,
Shish Mahal, Jama Masjid, Tomb of Itmad-ud-daulah, Akbar's Mausoleum,
and the Mariyam's Tomb, to name a few.
