About Agra

Many of us may have dreamily thought of getting married in the city of love, an epitome of endearment and affection. Agra, the city of Taj, is the embodiment of a famous overwhelming love story that still resonates in the air of this small town. It is a small, compact city that is still rooted in its ancient traditions, and yet the most sought-after tourist destination globally. The city flaunts its rich cultural heritage of kings and their lineage. Every corner of the city still preserves and takes pride in its aristocratic past and grandiose. Even today, untouched by rapid modernism, its beauty is in its rawness, untarnished atmosphere and vintage living. The city adorned with huge exorbitant royal monuments, each one concealing tales of glory and honor, gives lots to explore and unveil. Moving around the city is like solving mysterious puzzles and decoding the mystical life of the royal rulers. The magical days and somber nights in Agra are best spent adoring the unique architecture, flamboyance and exalted lifestyle of the royals. Expect to see the Taj Mahal (voted again as one of the seven wonders of the world), Fatehpur Sikri (declared as a UNESCO world heritage site), Mariam tomb, the Red Fort, and many other big and small mausoleums and tombs erected by the kings to commemorate various occasions of their rule. The place reckons those who admire grandeur, rich architecture, and historical recordings. With a large amount of influence of Muslim culture and traditions in most of its monuments, the place gives a glimpse of a completely different cultural persona.
