Home to the Taj Mahal, Agra is an ancient city infused with the legacy of the Mughal Empire.

A windswept desert city, Agra lives in both past and present. Filled with ornate mosques, romantic palaces, and some of the world’s most opulent mausoleums, all adorned with the ancient motifs of Persian and Islamic design, it’s also one of the busiest and liveliest places in India.

    Constructed in 1628 for Empress Nur Jahan’s father, the Persian-born treasurer and prime minister Mirza Ghiyas Beg, this masterwork of Mughal architecture marked a transition between the red sandstone of earlier eras and the use of white marble. A precursor to the Taj Mahal, it features the same intricate marble inlay technique, known as pietra dura, and screen-like marble roof seen in its more famous neighbor.

    One of the Seven Wonders of the World, this marble mausoleum is one of the world's most beloved sites.

Fatehpur Sikri
Fatehpur Sikri

Northern India is full of magnificent examples of Mughal architecture, but few are as awe-inspiring and fascinating as Fatehpur Sikri. Less than an hour’s drive from Agra, this 16th-century city rises out of the desert, a testament to Emperor Akbar’s determination. Intended as his new capital, Fatehpur Sikri was only inhabited for 13 years before a lack of water forced the court to leave, but its palaces, mosques, and pavilions remain.
