    Just visited for the first time. Best advice is hire a guide! We booked an Uber from our hotel in New Delhi to Agra. It was a four and a half hour drive and I would probably take the train next time as both the Uber driver and the 4 times as expensive driver we hired through the hotel for the return trip started dozing off. I am sure they work long hours, but it made for an intense ride and we would have prefered a relaxing train ride. We spent the night in Agra so we could be at the Taj Mahal first thing in the morning when it was cool and there were less people. Our guide had a lot of great information, handled the tipping for us, kept the solicitors at bay, and knew all the best photo spots to take our picture. I was thankful that we hired a guide and would tell all my friends and family to do the same.

    We took the Delhi to Agra one-day trip on April 2nd 2022. The excellent (!) driver vishal picked us up at our hotel and took us to Agra in a neat and comfortable car. On the way he stopped several times to let us have a quick glance at some landmarks in Delhi - we really enjoyed that! The ride to Agra took about 3 hours in total and we added a quick stop for breakfast and a coffee somewhere along the way. Once we reached Agra we met our guide haider ali, who took us to the Taj Mahl, the Agra Fort and a craftsmen demonstration of Indian marble and inlay art. Haider was very energetic and we enjoyed our time with him very much. He took a lot of pictures, knew a lot of good spots to take pics and was very knowledgeable about the sights as well. We had lunch at a pretty fancy place for Indian standards and it was also really delicious! At the craftsman's stop we were not pressured to buy anything, but we just had a look around and listened to the demonstration.

    Another mausoleum (like the Taj Mahal) but on a smaller scale, you get to see things more up close and personal. And there are no crowds. It is a complex of buildings, also including gates, wells, fountains and gardens. In many ways this is better than the Taj due to the quiet, and ability to see it all up close. One hour is all you’ll need. Do it.

    This palace inside Agra Fort is probably the most significant building inside the fort complex, and housed the women of the royal household. There’s no much evidence of that, though I thought the most significant structures are the multistoried red sandstone walls and the huge bowl used as a bath.

    Shri Mankameshwar Temple in Agra is one of the ancient temples devoted to Lord Shiva and is located close to Agra Fort Railway Station. One has to descend a few stairs to reach the sanctum sanctorum. Devotees require to be in traditional Indian dress such as Dhoti or Saree to enter the Sanctum. It is said that the Shiva Linga is covered by silver metal and was founded by the Lord Himself during Dwapara era. A must go for every devotee visiting the city.

    Beautiful mosque across the Taj, One can even see the spot where the Emperor Shahjehan offered prayers behind the main Imam. We visited early morning. The place was so calm, beautiful and serene.

    The court of public hearings. Since this was dedicated to the general public, it is large in size, although lacks the grandeur. The arches of the ceilings are intricately carved and are pure works of art. The place is clean and well maintained too.

    That this very high ranking representative of the British Raj during the Indian Rebellion of 1857 rests in this conspicuous place is a sore point with some Indians. However it is a tribute to their forgiving attitude that the tomb has been left untouched. Also, Colvin was not too hard-fisted and was even accused by higher authorities for showing too much clemency in a proclamation to the "natives" which was therefore censured.

    This is a small village more like a heritage village, portraying a typical Indian ecosystem of homely cooked food and experience to local culture. You can drop by while your way to Fatehpur Sikri.

    It is a very beautiful and old temple. It is situated in Raja Kaira at Shamsabad Road in Agra.The temple has a beautiful Shivlinga installed inside the main sanctum along with a Nandi.Devotees take blessings from Lord Shiva by offering- Sugar, honey, Milk, flowers and the holy water of Ganges. Kanvarias also bring divine water to offer on Lingam during Shravana Maas.

    In a corner of Agra is a cemetery initially made for the Armenian Christians who visited the court of Akbar and the oldest grave is of Thomas Mildenhall an Englishman who died in 1614.
    However this cemetery is famous for the mausoleum of Dutchman, Colonel John William Hessing, made by his wife Anne. It's called the Red Taj mahal as its made in Mughal architecture.
    It also houses the tomb of Sombre the husband of Begum Samru.
    It's a beautiful cemetery and very peaceful and we'll looked after.
