Agra: The Benevolent City 

Agra has always been a city with dreams and admirers that come in millions. This wonderful city has visitors from all round the world, who come in large flocks just to experience the rich heritage that this city beholds. When it comes to Agra the first thing that comes in our minds is the Taj Mahal, which is included in the Wonders of the World. Known as the symbol of Love, the monument stands as one of the greatest achievements of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan who ruled from the year 1627 to 1658. Built in the loving memory of Queen Mumtaz Mahal, Taj still is a perfect example of how perfect the Mughal architecture was and it still competes against some of the finest architectures there exist in the world even today. Mumtaz Mahal died a tragic death in the year 1631 after giving birth to her 14th child. Let’s not end the journey with only Taj Mahal, as northern India also accounts to the magnificent Red Fort in Delhi as well. It took around ten years for Shah Jahan to get his new marvel completed and he chose Delhi as the perfect destination for that. By the year 1638 the architecture was completed and even after the end of the Mughal era in the year 1858, the attraction never stopped gaining deserved attention. When we talk of major sightseeing attractions in India, how can we leave the historical sight of Itmad-ud-daula, which has a very special place when we talk about historical places with some of the best architectures. It is proclaimed as one of the first tombs built in India entirely out of marble. This brings us to Fatehpur Sikri, which is built 40 km to the western part of Agra and is also popular for being the short lived capital of the Mughal Empire.
