Rise early for your journey to Agra by road. Visit the UNESCO-listed Agra Fort, an important 16th-century Mughal monument resembling a walled city that is just one-and-a-half miles from its more famous neighbour, the Taj Mahal.

Consider visiting a local community project which manufactures handmade traditional carpets and mats. This project uses traditional weaving looms and styles and creates jobs and skills for marginalised local men and women.

Be mesmerised by the Taj Mahal that is built in the name of love and dedication to Shah Jahan's favourite wife. Wander through this architectural wonder observing intricate carvings, marble screens and inlaid semi-precious stones. Relax in the gardens watching a magical sunset over this famous monument.
