Where stories begin

Agra Holidays

The breathtaking sight of the Taj Mahal draws visitors to Agra from across the globe, each eager to see one of the world’s most beautiful buildings. Indeed, the Taj Mahal is so central to the city's identity, it led to its second name - The City of Love.

But the incomparable Taj Mahal is not the only attraction in this former capital of the Mughal Empire. The phenomenal sandstone mass Agra Fort dominates the east of the city - its courtyards and pavilions also echoing the fascinating stories of an era where rule and power was symbolised by grandiose palaces and forts. And the banks of the sacred Yamuna River display the legacy imperial rule in an extravagant series of tombs and mausoleums of which the Taj Mahal itself is just one.

Elsewhere, Agra is a bustling city of ornate haveli mansions, onion-domed mosques and surprisingly ancient Christian churches (testament to the religious fascinations of Emperor Akbar who invited Jesuits to come all the way to the city from Goa). Lose yourself in the lively maze of colourful bazaars and markets which thrive virtually unchanged since ancient times.
