    So much to be said, that words seem but so little to describe a Taj Mahal, a monument that stands tall against all odds as a witness to the times that were, is and will be. Its beauty is spoken of through the centuries but what's remarkable is the craftsmanship made in an era of no machines nor modern transportation. Made in memory of pure love that required only pure love and patience to carve something so majestic and yet so beautiful. It speaks of painstaking labour of days, weeks, months and years. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind whilst visiting the Taj Mahal. Online Pre booking of entry tickets is highly recommended to avoid standing in long queues and saving on time. Carry the basic mobile and a wallet/ purse only. And yes, if you're travelling anytime March onwards, ensure that you wear a cap/ hat for protection from the scorching sun, as there are hardly any places of shade to sit or rest within the premises. There will be innumerable guides offering to show you around the taj and its surroundings at a chargeable rate. There are photographers too within the complex. The photography rates are clearly mentioned on the signboards at strategic points. you will be required to buy shoe covers for Rs.10 which you will need to wear when you enter the main Taj Mahal Mausoleum. Photography is strictly prohibited here or else your mobile/ camera will get confiscated by the security personnel.
    Once you come out after having visited the monument, your heart will surely feel blessed and peaceful after having seen this beautiful monument that every Indian is so proud of, an epitome of love that is truly deserving its place in the 7 wonders of the world!

    The fort is definitely worth a visit if in Agra. There are good views of the Taj and lots to see in the fort itself. However, a lot of the spaces are quite empty and without our guide we wouldn’t have picked up on all the stories. Still well worth a visit.

    Easily overlooked but not to be missed. A stunning mausoleum set in beautiful gardens. The riverside location provides a lovely cool atmosphere.

    There are Sheesh Mahal, or palaces of mirrors, in Amer, Lahore and Orchha. The one in Agra Fort is less impressive than others, but still worth a visit - if only for the beautiful pietra dura flowers in the white marble. And, anyway, you've paid your ticket into Agra Fort, so may as well.

    WHEN I walked into one building at Jama Masjid I felt like I was on the set of some Hollywood blockbuster which had created a strange alien environment.
    Carved beams criss-crossed overhead with unusual carved decorations beneath each intersection.
    It was not the first surprise that a tour of Fatehpursikri would throw at me.
    Jama Masjid is a 16th century mosque, one of the largest in India, and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
    The courtyard is gigantic, covering more than 230,000 sq ft.
    Be warned. You have to take your shoes off to be allowed in, women must wear long gowns and men in shorts will be asked to wear a wrap which can be hired at the entrance.

    The Shah Burj (also known as the Musamman or Muthamman Burj) is a domed tower that was built sometime in 1632-1640 CE at Agra Fort by Shahjahan, on the site of an earlier similar structure built by Akbar. The Shah Burj was the site of the jharokha-e-darshan, a 'window' from which the emperor would provide his subjects a daily morning view of himself, to reassure them of his safety and well-being. In Jahangir's time, this also became the site where a thick metal chain was attached, reaching to the ground and allowed to be pulled by whoever wished to appeal to the emperor's sense of justice: the 'adl-e-Jahangir'.

    The Sabz Burj offers a fine view of the Taj Mahal. Shahjahan, imprisoned in the chambers beside the Burj by his son and successor Aurangzeb, is supposed to have looked longingly out at the distant view of the mausoleum he had built for his empress.

    On my visit, the majority of attendees were locals coming to pray and worship at this Sikh temple. The premises are well maintained, be prepared to remove your footwear to enter the temple.

    We echo the comments in the previous positive reviews, many of which also explain how this walk is part of an important and inspiring community project. After enjoying touring the wonderful buildings in Agra this was a great opportunity to interact safely, respectfully and informatively with local people and learn about the way of life in their village. The view of the Taj Mahal was a bonus. Wear sensible shoes as you are walking through a rural village with free-range animals and all that entails!

    Akbar had built several palaces in the Agra Fort, and his son and successor Jahangir had added to them. These comprise the Jahangiri Mahal and Akbari Mahal, both approached through a beautiful gate decorated with red sandstone and yellow dholpur stone. The palaces inside are small, made almost completely of red sandstone, very intricately carved, and with some traces of beautiful painted and incised plaster.

    The Agra Fort ticket, Rs 35 per Indian adult, covers these palaces. An interesting artefact just outside the gate here is Jahangir's bath tub, shaped like a giant tea cup with rough steps on the side to climb in.

    Dayal Bagh seemed a welcome change- a Remarkably calm and peaceful oasis in midst of madness of the bustling city of Agra. The newly completed temple is worth a visit

    One can feel inside that the real diwan-i-am is going on where one can see clearly both the entry points at two opposite side. Unfortunately the light and sound show is not happening now

    Located not far from taj mahal and can easily be reached by auto. Crowded during evening with lots of people of roaming. Mama Franky and Cafe coffee day is also there. On the road you will find various ice-creams and tea shops.
    Chaat gali is also in between the market and you can find a variety of items like shoes, petha ,ornaments and many more . Live perfomance also happen in the evening.
