arrow-icon

Breakfast at the hotel. Pack up and transfer by road* to Agra. En route, visit one of India's best kept secrets, the spectacular Chand Baori, built more than a thousand years ago by King Chand as a water storage and maintenance system.

Next, visit the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri, built during the reign of Emperor Akbar, in honor of Saint Salim Chisti, who correctly prophesied that Akbar would have three sons. The city was the capital of the Mughal Empire until the lack of water forced the city to be abandoned, which explains why it is so well preserved. Among the notable buildings are the Diwan-I-Am, Diwan-I-Khas, Jodhabai Palace, Birbal House, Marian House and Panchmahal, all excellent examples of Mughal architecture. After the stop, continue towards Agra. Transfer to the hotel on arrival and spend the rest of the evening as you please. Overnight stay in Agra.

Before dawn, head to the Taj Mahal to contemplate the colors of this iconic monument at the first light of the day.

This monument combines the defensive architecture of powerful red sandstone walls with the refinement and luxury of a marble palace.
