South of New Delhi, on the west bank of the Yamuna River, lies the historical city of Agra. As the erstwhile seat of the mighty Mughal empire, from the 1550s to the 1650s, Agra enjoyed a golden period of power and privilege. Today, as millions of tourists flock to see the world famous Taj Mahal, this magnificent monument stands as a symbol of Agra’s rich historical legacy. The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built by Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved begum, Mumtaz Mahal. His love for the queen is immortalized in pure white marble, a translucent stone that reflects the soft pink of the dawn, and the fiery shades of dusk. Nowhere is love and passion so beautifully captured as in edifice of the Taj. Considered an architectural marvel, its construction took thousands of workers over 21 years to complete. Apart from the Taj, Agra also boasts many other iconic monuments. From Akbar’s Tomb to Agra Fort and the walled city of Fatehpur Sikri, Agra is home to some important monuments that tell the colourful tales of India’s fascinating history.
