Just like the waterfalls of Niagara, It is a must-visit to the beautiful city of Agra !!
The beautiful city Agra is on the banks of the Yamuna river belonging to the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh. The town was once the Mughal Capital when Shah Jahan’s wife was alive; however, after the death of Mumtaz Mahal, Shah Jahan shifted his capital from the city of Agra to the current capital of India, New Delhi.
Agra is popularly known for its beautiful Wonder of the World Taj Mahal, which was built by Shah Jahan for his beloved wife. It is considered to be a symbol of love. However, there is more to Agra than just Taj Mahal as it stayed the capital of Mughal emperor Akbar who has contributed to the Indo- Persian architectural marvels like tombs and religious places.
Further tourism has been a source of income for the people of Agra as it has provided an opportunity for enhancing handicrafts and handloom.
Apart from the wonderful architecture with three UNESCO Heritage Sites, this place has a local medieval culture to offer.
The cuisine is mouth-watering with numerous stories behind its development and style of making. The small lanes and lit up streets makes it a perfect place to enjoy the cultural authenticity. Since it is a place where both Hindus and Muslims live, therefore the festivities are unlimited, and each festival is celebrated with great zeal and zest.
