Agra and Taj Mahal

Filed Under India

India has many architectural wonders to brag but the one that is surely on top of the heap is the symbol of eternal love which is the Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal is an architectural wonder that is located in Agra, India.

If you still don’t know anything about Taj Mahal then just a little history, there was once an emperor named Shah Jahan who has a beautiful wife named Queen Mumtaz Mahal. They lived in Agra and when she died back in 1631, the grieving husband decided to create a mausoleum for her and that’s what we now know as the Taj Mahal.

Aside from the Taj Mahal, there are other monuments in Agra, India that you can visit. There’s the Tomb of Itmad Ud Daulah as well as the Tomb at Sikandra of Akbar who is a Mughal Emperor that ruled in 1556 to 1605. The Tomb for Itmad Ud Daulah is somewhat similar to the Taj Mahal which is why they call it the Baby Taj. The Rambagh Gardens is also worth a visit as well as the Dayalbagh Gardens. If that’s not enough, there’s the Jama Masjid Agra as well as Buland Darwaza.

In Agra you can also buy some of India’s finest products such as their rugs and brasswares. There are authentic leathers being sold here too and you’ll surely have something to buy on your trip to their market. You’ll also be surprised, the prices in India is so low that everything you buy seems such a great bargain. And one other thing you’d love here is the people. They are all very friendly!
