Same Day Agra Tour by Car
"Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passions of an emperor's love wrought in living stones." - Sir Edwin Arnold.
Yes, these words are for the Taj Mahal, a monument that has acquired a higher position than just an architectural marvel. Millions of poets tried their pen over it but no one could describe the true elegance and feelings this monument has in every single marble piece of it. So even we won't try to describe it through words – we'll take you right at its doorstep so you can explore the unparallel elegance by yourself.
The Same Day Agra Tour by Car, offered by Taj Mahal Private Day Tours, is the ideal way to explore the majestic beauty of the Taj Mahal in the shortest time possible. Crafted carefully by keeping your busy schedule in mind yet not missing the essential edge, the tour takes you right to the foundation of the 'Seventh Wonder of the World' and everything important around it, before dropping you back to the point we started from, on the very same day.
The itinerary for Same Day Agra Tour by Car goes as follows:
Pick-up from Hotel/Airport:
Our representative will pick you up from your hotel in Delhi or from Delhi International Airport. After a brief welcome, ride into a comfortable car and drive towards Agra. The 245km distance between Delhi and Agra shall be covered in 3 hours on smooth Yamuna Expressway.
Visit to Taj Mahal:
As soon as you reach Agra, our first destination would be none other than the Taj Mahal. Located beautifully on the banks of River Yamuna, the monument is an absolute gold at sunrise.
Taj Mahal has more historical importance than the whole Agra has in combined. This is because, the history and culture of this ancient town revolves around the Mughal Dynasty that gave it something unparallel to feel proud of, and Taj Mahal is the most prominent amongst everything else.
Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in fond memory of his beloved wife Mumtaj Mahal, who died while giving birth to their 14th child, Taj Mahal acquired the status of Lovers' Delight. And since more than 25,000 people worked day-in-and-day-out for straight 22 years to create something majestic, Taj Mahal is a synonym for excellent architecture.
Surrounded by four huge minarets at each corner, Taj Mahal has an identical look from all faces. The only difference is – the east-facing wall has a huge entrance gate that takes you inside the massive building. And located in the complex are graves of the couple – Shah Jahan and Mumtaj Mahal, blessing every couple visiting here or feeling proud when any poet uses his pen to write about the Taj.
Offer your prayers to the couple resting in peace and click a few pictures of yourself standing in the massive monuments. The outside area of Taj Mahal is a great place to sit and relax for an hour or two, as the soothing breeze from Yamuna makes the whole environment very pleasant.
At a fair distance from Taj is located its smaller replica – the Baby Taj. Basically the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula, the beautiful monument is a must visit for architecture lovers and history lovers equally.
After visiting these two places, it's the lunch time. We shall enter the Bon Barbeque Restaurant for a buffet lunch. The journey resumes post lunch.
Standing by the Taj is the Agra Fort, yet another architectural marvel built during the Mughal Dynasty. The monument was built in 1573 to establish as a capital of Mughal Empire in Agra. For many years to come, the fort remained the power house of India serving as a residence of Mughal Emperors. Shah Jahan, the constructor of Taj Mahal, was imprisoned in Agra Fort for many years.
Presently, Agra Fort has been converted into a Museum and is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A large number of belongings of the erstwhile rulers can be found in the monument. Therefore, it is a must-visit for history lovers.
With a visit to Agra Fort, the Same Day Agra Tour by Car ends here. We shall drive back to Delhi in a car where our representative will drop you at your hotel or the Airport. Taj Mahal Private Day Tours thanks you for the wonderful selection.
