Overview

"Agra Beyond Taj Mahal" is a special program of 02 days designed to enjoy and cheer the beauty of the Taj Mahal and many more architectural marvels. Undoubtedly, the Taj Mahal is the most beautiful and most photographed building and so is always a highlight of any tour program in India. Besides the Taj Mahal, Agra is also home to two more UNESCO World Heritage Sites- Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri.

Agra has been the capital of India during the Great Mughals and later the capital of North-Western Province during the British. Each Mughal ruler and British left their marks in the form of many other architectural marvels like Chini-Ka-Roza, Aram Bagh, Akbar's Tomb at Sikandra, etc, and many graveyards with intricate carvings. Unfortunately, these smaller architectural specimens have been overshadowed by the beauty of the Taj Mahal. "Agra Beyond Taj Mahal" is to showcase some of these lesser-known monuments through a Heritage Walk of the city which has numerous marks of history.
