Agra is an ancient city in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India, which is almost equivalent to the Taj Mahal, its main attraction. It is your gateway to a beautiful era signified by several landmarks scattered throughout the city.

The Taj Mahal is undoubtedly beautiful. Its “embodiment of all things pure” etched an immortal mark in history. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this 17th Century is well-preserved, rightfully making it a commanding sight in Agra. But the city is more than just about the Taj Mahal. Agra Fort, a massive sandstone 16th Century building along the banks of the Yamuna River, is another fantastic sight to behold. Other masterpiece attractions in Agra include Mariam’s Tomb, Itmad-Ud-Daula, and Ram Bagh.

New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, a primary gateway to some of the world’s best cities, is the nearest flight hub to Agra, about 220 kilometers away. From there, you can reach the city by train or bus.

Where to Stay in Agra

Click below & search recommended Agra hotels/hostels/home rentals within your budget. Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings.

Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
