It is always fun to embark a visit to a place where both history and modernity share the same level and when it comes to places of this sort, India has them in plenty. Agra is one such city that reflects the picture perfect synergy between India's hoary heritage and culture. The arresting ambience of Agra is what makes this city, located in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, so very special.

The city was originally famous as Agrabana and has also got its name mention in the epic of Mahabharata. Agra has been strong witness of the changing times. It has seen the many generation of kings and toppling down of many empires. Agra since a long time was a hot seat of the Mughals. The Mughal empire has been instrumental in making Agra the city of architectural wonder. The historic monuments in Agra are many.
Chief Draws
Taj Mahal Taj Mahal- Taj Mahal one of the new seven wonders of the world is the most pride possession of India. This epitome of love in white marble was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved better half in 1648. The monument is a great example of the finery of Mughal architecture. It took 20 long years in the completion of this stupendous monument and hard labour of around 20,000 workers. Taj looks stunning by thew moonlight and offers such romantic ambience that would leave couples intoxicated.

Agra Fort - Among many impressive monuments in Agra, Agra Fort is also one. Situated on the banks of river Yamuna, this monument was built by the Mughal emperor Akbar. The walls of this massive structure has been made of sandstone. Agra Fort is partially occupied by the Indian Army. Some sections of the fort is restricted for the tourists. Diwan-i-Am (Hall of public audience) and Diwan-i-khas (Hall of private audience) are located inside the fort and showcase the exquisite Mughal carvings on their many pillars. Apart from these there are a number of great built buildings inside the Agra Fort they are: Rambagh Gardens - The Rambagh Gardens in Agra are synonymous with beauty of a class built by the Mughals. In Islam gardens are considered to be paradise. Therefore kings of earlier times regarded the construction of gardens as an important task to do. The garden has been inspired by the Persian style.

Chini Ka Rauza - The Chini Ka Rauza is not a very famous piece of architecture. It was built in 1635 and is the tomb of Allama Afzal Khan Mullah of Shiraz, a scholar and poet who was the Prime Minister of Emperor Shah Jahan.

Itmad-ud-daulah's Tomb - Built by Empress Noor Jehan in the memory of her father, Mirza Ghiyas Beg, Itmad-Ud-Daulah's Tomb was the first Mughal structure totally constructed of marble and the first to make extensive use of the pietra dura inlay work of marble which is so much a part of the Taj. The mausoleum is small and squat compared to the soaring Taj. There are also extremely fine marble lattice-work passages admitting light to the interior.
