Agra

Overview

The Taj Mahal never fails to impress with its dazzling white marble dome and four minarets; a breathtaking view, perfectly framed from the moment you walk through the huge, red sandstone gateway. Semi-precious stones decorate the exterior and interior in delicate floral patterns while black marble texts of the Koran surround the doorway. It is well worth spending a short time at the Itmad-ud-Daulah, another mausoleum which was built before the Taj Mahal and whose design provided its inspiration. The enormous Agra Fort should not be missed either as it gives an excellent idea of life in the Mughal court.

The Gatimaan Express, India’s fastest train, covers the journey from Delhi in under two hours. It runs every day except Friday when the Taj Mahal is closed.
