Watch the Mughal culture come back to life right in front of your eyes!

The highlight in Agra is the ten day ‘Taj Mahotsav’, held in February every year. Attending this festival presents the opportunity for one to dive into the local culture and get a first hand feel of the history of Agra. Ride on beautifully painted elephants and decorated camel like royals, or shop for the local handicrafts of the area from the exhibits that dot the Shilpgram Village during this time.

If here during this time you can also witness local song and dance and a host of other performances, with the backdrop of the majestic Taj Mahal. Do try to plan your trip accordingly for an unforgettable experience!

The various religions in Agra lead to a host of celebrations throughout the year. Some of the important festivals in this city are Eid, Christmas, Holi and Diwali which unleash a new life unto the city and see it decked up in a variety of decorations and colours.
