Overview of Agra

Agra is the majesty of India that allures tourists from around the globe for its one wonder marvel- Taj Mahal. Built by Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife in 15th century, Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Agra Fort, on the other hand is a shadow of Taj built in red sandstone and overlooks the entire city. Agra straddles a large bend along the holy Yamuna River.
