When in Agra, a visit to the iconic Taj Mahal and the awe-inspiring Agra fort is a must! And WRJ Holidays helps you do that in style! Our representative will pick you up from your hotel lobby! He will be your private guide as you spend 4 hours wandering through Agra's most stunning sights! Let the excitement sink in, as we head to the glorious Taj Mahal (closed on Fridays) and learn what makes this marvel of immense exquisiteness a world recognized wonder! Learn some never-heard-before stories about this remarkable monument! Did you know that it was Mumtaz Mahal, the wife of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who extracted 4 promises from her husband on her death-bed; one of which was that the emperor must build the Taj in her memory! Hear more such legends of the Taj before we proceed to pay a visit to another UNESCO World Heritage site, the magnificent Agra Fort. Built primarily as a military structure by Emperor Akbar, the Agra Fort was transformed into a palace by his son, Emperor Shah Jahan during his reign. It is said to have been modelled after Gwalior's Raja Man Singh Tomar's Rajput fort. Several exquisite buildings, including the Moti Masjid, Diwan-i-Aam, Diwan-i-Khaas, Jahangir's Palace, and the Sheesh Mahal are on the fort premises. There is also the Musamman Burj, the place where Shah Jahan died after being imprisoned by his son, Emperor Aurangzeb. Think about the enriching afternoon you spent with us as we drop you back to your hotel where your tour concludes.
