The Same Day Agra Tour by Train starts from Delhi and ends at the same places, covering some of the most remarkable travel destinations in Agra, including the Taj, Agra Fort and Baby Taj. The tour itinerary goes as follows:
Early morning, our representative will pick you up from your hotel in Delhi or from Airport, from where we shall drive to reach Delhi Railway Station.
Ride into air-conditioned Shatabdi Express. The train leaves at 06:00 AM for Agra. Breakfast will be served on your seat.
The train reaches Agra at 08:00 AM, where our representative would be waiting for you. After a warm welcome, drive towards Taj Mahal in a comfortable car. Taj Mahal, beautifully located on the banks of River Yamuna, is a monument of immense historical importance. Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaj Mahal, Taj is known as one of the finest architectures in the world.
But what's more important is – the monument became a symbol of love as it displays the true love of an emperor for his wife. This is the reason why millions of love-birds visit this place and pray for their eternal love and togetherness.
Now let's get back to the elegance & ambience of the Taj that reflects in each piece of marble it has. The monument is a result of the hard work of 22,000 artisans working for straight 25 years. It is believed that despite of the cutting-edge technology and instruments, it is impossible to create another Taj Mahal. And yes, many attempts were made to do so, but the results are nowhere close to the elegance of the masterpiece.
The Taj premise consists of a massive complex with a tomb atop, a large corridor and four huge minarets on each corner. Every piece of marble stone, which was bought from Makrana in Rajasthan, is placed so carefully that it becomes almost difficult to find the joints.
Explore the majestic beauty of Taj Mahal and click a few pictures for your memories. Feel the soothing breeze touching the walls of the monument. Live in the fragrance of pure love in the air. These are a few moments you would love to keep in your heart for a lifetime.
Among the innumerable attempts to replicate Taj Mahal, one is located in Agra itself. Known as the Baby Taj, it is a tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula. Not as beautiful as its bigger version, Baby Taj is still a beautiful monument with immense historical value. It's a must visit place for architecture lovers and history enthusiasts.
Now it's time to try something offbeat that has remained a popular attraction of Agra – the delicious cuisines. We shall enter the Bon Barbeque Restaurant for a buffet lunch and to allow you to loosen up.
Second of the two sister-monuments in Agra is the massive fort called Agra Fort. Located at a distance of 2.5km from Taj Mahal, the monument has its immense historical importance. It was built during the era when the Mughal Dynasty was on its peak, and it became the reason for the collapse of that powerful dynasty. Aurangzeb, the son of Shah Jahan imprisoned his father in the fort for 15 years till Shah Jahan's last breath.
Originally constructed to serve as the capital of the Mughal Empire, the fort has now been converted into a museum housing the belongings of erstwhile rulers. Wander in the fort to see the charisma of the Empire and appreciate the hard work of the people who worked it.
