Agra Tourist Attractions - The Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan

One of the biggest Agra attractions is of course the Taj Mahal, which attracts tourists from across the world. The Taj Mahal is a monument of love built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal in the 17th century. There are other Agra tourist attractions which make a visit to this North Indian city worthwhile. The city’s Mughal monuments are a must in any Agra sightseeing tour.

After the Taj Mahal, one of the biggest Agra tourist attractions is the Agra Fort, built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar in the 16th century, and now a World Heritage Site. Other Agra attractions include Fatehpur Sikhri, again built by Akbar, and which has a number of striking buildings of historical importance. Other places on the Agra sightseeing itinerary include Itmad-Ud-Daulah’s Tomb, Akbar’s Tomb in Sikandra, the Mughal garden of Ram Bagh and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

There are many operators who offer sightseeing tours to Agra. For those who don’t want to stay in Agra, some operators offer daily trips from Delhi, which start in the morning and return you to the capital the same night.

Getting on to a golden triangle tour of North India is also a good and affordable option for travelers, as they don’t only get to visit Agra, but they also get to visit Delhi and Jaipur.
