She died in 1630 A.D and it was her last wish that a memorial should be built in her memory that was simply matchless and which the world had not seen earlier. 12.00 MARBLE INLAY WORKhis art work done on marble is mainly carried out in Agra in Uttar Pradesh in India where the former is noted for its inlay work on table tops, flooring, and wall decorative and the latter is known for its Parchin Kari work. The Parchin Kari art involves very minute and precise inlay work and is quite expensive and very graceful with intricate labor. Among the various stone arts that flourished in the country the most famous one was the inlay or the crafting work done with marble stones. This craft flourished and reached its peak during the era of the Mughals in Medieval India and especially after the construction of Taj Mahal. It is believed that initially during the early 17th century in Italy minute inlay work was done on different forms of precious stones and this was referred as Pietradura where Pietra stands for stone and dura stands for anything hard. The Italians were outstanding in this classic art and in fact held an exclusive possession over this art.13:00 - LunchLunch will be served at Agra's best AC restaurant and variety of Mughlai cuisines will be served.14: 00 - Local MarketAfter Lunch you can enjoy this Mughal town and buy handicrafts and souvenirs for your friends and relatives.15:30 - Agra FortAfter visiting this symbol of true love you will be taken to visit Agra Fort which is also a UNESCO World Heritage.
