    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.

    We visited SOS Elephant conservation centre with kids. It was a wonderful experience especially for kids to know how SOS efforts are helping Elephants and nature and was very thought provoking for them on what they can do as well for nature.

    Reading story of each rescue elephant was very moving and it was great to see SOS doing such an amazing work and we could chip in with small contribution in this big effort.

    Highly recommend for family to visit.

    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.

    Great views of the Taj without any crowds. But the park has poor access. Parking is bit far, you might want to take a battery operated rickshaw. Park is poorly maintained. A wasted opportunity

    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

    Welcoming to non-Sikhs who are interested to visit. Interesting, calm spiritual place and free food is given to all who visit.

    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.

    My wife and I visited the Jama Masjid as part of a Golden Triangle tour with the TripaDeal group in February.

    It was very interesting, but you must remove your shoes, women have to wear long gowns and men, if wearing shorts, have to wear a "wrap". These are hired at the entrance.

    It has very interesting architecture and was very busy, with a few different entrances.

    Well worth visiting the largest mosque in India.

    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.

    This place seemed to much fewer visitors than other parts of the fort but we found it peaceful. The knot gardens are well laid out and worth a good walk around early in the morning. Water features were not working when we were there. Cooler too.

    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.
