Be a Time Traveler in Agra, India

Most of us have been regaled by medieval stories of bravery and strength during our childhood. Who did not hear the stories of Ali Baba and his dealings with forty thieves, as well as Aladdin and his wonderful lamp? These are the stories that we grew up with, stories that would explain why we would find a Delhi and Agra Tour Package a very tempting treat that we would not want to miss.

Agra tourism has always been high as it offers what even modern technology can not offer: a trip back in time. This is because in the 16th and 17th century, the Mughals made Agra their home and capital, and spent their time doing what they were so passionate about: building. The finest pieces of architecture in the world are the ones you will see when you take one of the Agra tours, and these structures would include forts, castles, and mausoleums that would make you feel as if you were the part of the romantic and majestic era like the medieval period.

Of course, an Agra tour package would be nothing without a Taj Mahal tour. The Taj Mahal, known to be part of the Seven Wonders of the World, is the worlds’most universally recognized architectural masterpiece. Taj Mahal was constructed by Shah Jahan, one of the emperors of the Mughal Empire, and it was built in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. One would feel awe when looking at this artistic piece from afar, but the sight is nothing compared to what can be seen upon entering the monument itself. Persian, Turkish, and Indian architectural styles were combined in order to build and decorate this huge mausoleum, and the result is nothing short of majestic. The Taj Mahal tour is what would complete the day of any person who holds a fascination for the Arabian Nights!

You can not take an Agra tour without passing through the Delhi International Airport, so do not waste the opportunity and go through the city as well. You can decide to take a Delhi and Agra tour package in order to see the wonderful tourist attractions in both cities. In Delhi, you can see Humayun's Tomb which was built in the middle of the 16th century. Some say that this is the predecessor of the Taj Mahal, and the main difference between the two (apart from size) is the fact that this tomb is made from red sand stone. The Taj Mahal is primarily made of marble. Take your time and explore The Red Fort in Delhi, Jama Masjid, the most beautiful mosque in India, Qutab Minar, the worlds tallest brick minaret and the mysterious Iron Pillar standing next to it. Enjoy the beauty of Lotus Temple and pay your respect to the Father of Indian Nation, Mahatma Gandhi by visiting Raj Ghat.

There are civilizations that have come and gone throughout this world, but not much of them have been able to leave such an outstanding example of their lifestyle. India, however, has been given so many examples of the life of their predecessors, and they take this as a blessing and continue to maintain what is already there. This is why you should take advantage of the Agra tour packages- it is not everyday that you can go back in time and see how previous civilizations lived, especially when they had no indoor plumbing. Do not hesitate, book now and see the wonder that is Agra, India.
