The city that boasts of having one of the seven wonders of the world and three UNESCO world heritage sites, Agra is a treat for history and architecture lovers. The medieval city located on the banks of the river Yamuna, it is one of the most visited cities in the country.

Strategically located at the heart of India in the alluvial plains between the Ganga and Yamuna, Agra had been a religious and commercial centre for centuries, but it matured and perfected itself only when the Mughals made it their home. Agra is not only famous for its Mughal art and culture but is also known for its food, chat, and the famous Panchi ka Petha. The city even after being one of the hottest cities of the country, is visited in high numbers every day.

The nightlife might not be something worth mentioning but the beauty that this old city acquires at the night makes you love it and relish every bit of it. People's' hearts here are as grand as the Buland Darwaza, the sight of Taj Mahal is as sweet as the Petha for the eyes, a shining symbol of India’s rich architectural heritage and one of the seven wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal remains a timeless masterpiece. And shopping on the streets in the sunny afternoons is as chatpata as the famous Daal Moth. Come to the city for a weekend's exploration of architectural marvels such as Fatehpur Sikri, the feel of an old city, and to know for yourself what is this city described as a paradise in Mahabharata so popular for. 

How can the Bollywood leave out Taj Mahal when it comes to the depiction of romance? Taj Mahal in Agra has been a backdrop for many Bollywood movie sets and songs. The legendary movie Mughal-e-Azam's song ‘Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya’ has been shot at the Agra Fort. The famous song ‘Suno na Sangemarmar’ has been shot at the Taj Mahal. The movies Bunty aur Babli and Pardes also show the glimpses of the Taj Mahal and the Agra city. Even Hollywood couldn't stay away from shooting at this picturesque location.


Local food in Agra is a complete delight to savour. True, there are several upscale and urban restaurants in Agra that serve awesome Mughlai, Indian, Chinese and other specialities. However, if you want a real treat for your taste buds with local flavors, don’t forget to indulge in Petha (a type of sweet candy) and Dal Moth (a spicy lentil mix). Agra is a heaven for Chat lovers as well as you will find chaat stalls at every nook and corner in the city. People love to throng places like Double Phatak (which is near Sikandra) for chaats and pani puri. Also, there is another market named “Kinari Bazar”, where you can find plethora of local delectables. Don’t forget to round off your meal with a pan, another local speciality of Agra.

Exploring one of the seven wonders of the world

Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri are the major attractions. Though the city needs to be more clean and people were not that friendly, however, the sight of Taj Mahal and Agra fort was amazing.
