Taj Mahal Sunrise Tour
Visit Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage site at sunrise. This white-marble world wonder was built by a great emperor in memory of his beloved. Afterwards, you’ll visit the imposing Agra Fort (another UNESCO World Heritage site), built by Emperor Akbar in 1565 CE. This huge fort is made of red sandstone and features elegant buildings. The inside reflects an interesting synthesis of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles which are simply amazing. Before returning to New Delhi, enjoy some shopping in Agra known for its fabulous handicrafts made of marble and soft stone inlay work. The Mughals were great patrons of arts and crafts. Empress Nur Jahan took personal interest and was an accomplished artist herself in zari embroidery work.
