The first destination on your Overnight Agra Tour from Delhi is the red coloured 'Agra Fort'; it was built by Mughal emperor Akbar and later finished by his grandson Shah Jahan.
Akbar liked the red sandstone and the material was gathered from several parts of the country for the construction.
It is a massive Fort and was then the home where the Mughal emperor resided when Agra remained the capital of the Mughals.
It has large complexes and offers spectacular views of the historic Mughal architecture.
Upon finishing the sightseeing of Agra fort, it is time to visit the best of the best; the Taj Mahal. Built by a powerful Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in loving memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal; Taj Mahal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and among the seven wonders of the world. It is largely believed (though a rumour) that the emperor cut off the hands of the labour who built this amazing piece of art and remunerated them with gold coins for a lifetime so that those labour could not build any other thing such beautiful.
The Taj Mahal looks best in the dusk and the dawn as the setting rays of the sun turns this ivory white monument into golden yellow and the views alongside the Yamuna is just breathtaking.
As the sun lingers towards setting in; we'll drop you at your hotel for your nightstay. You can move out of the hotel and explore the vibrant streets of Agra and fall in love with the hospitality offered by the people.
Overnight stay in the hotel
The best part of this tour is that you get to experience the mesmerizing Taj Mahal on both sides of the day i.e. the dusk and the dawn.
