Taj Mahal

The Taj stands as the symbol of Love and Beauty. It is the most extravagant monument ever to be built in the name of love. It was commissioned by the emperor Shahjahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz, who died during child birth. It took 15 years for the construction to be completed and around 20,000 people were employed to do the work. The artisans who were involved, either had their hand or thumb amputated so that they could not construct a similar structure. The main architect was Isa Khan who is believed to have been from Iran. The Taj Mahal's character changes during the stretch of the day. It looks its best on full moon nights, in the morning and evening hours. There are the decorative Mughal Gardens with water in the front of the Taj, so that the beautiful Taj is reflected in it.

Agra Fort

The Agra Fort presents a formidable appearance with its vast walls, standing seventy feet in height, and a mile and a half in circuit, with imposing turrets and gateways. The outer wall is surrounded by a moat. The principal entrance to the Agra fort is the Delhi Gate. Crossing the drawbridge over the moat and moving over a paved, inclined pathway reaches the Hathi Pol or Elephant Gate. The gateway leading to the great courtyard of the Diwan-i-Am is reached by a steep ramp after crossing the Amar Singh Gate and the second gate.

Itmad-Ud-Daulah Tomb (Baby Taj)

Itmad-Ud-Daulah's Tomb is a Mughal mausoleum in the city of Agra in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh . Often described as 'jewel box', sometimes called the Baby Taj , the tomb of Itmad-Ud-Daulah is often regarded as a "draft" of the Taj Mahal. Along with the main building, the structure consists of numerous outbuildings and gardens. The tomb, built between 1622 and 1628 represents the transition between the first phase of monumental Mughal architecture - primarily built from red sandstone with marble decorations, as in Humayun's Tomb in Delhi and Akbar's tomb in Sikandra - to its second phase, based on white marble and pietra dura inlay - most elegantly realized in the Taj Mahal.

Ram Bagh

It is one of the earliest Mughal gardens, Laid out in 1528 by Babar the first of the Mughal emperors, a couple of kilometres north of Chini-ka-rauza. It is said that Babar was temporarily buried here before being permanently interred at Kabul in Afghanistan. Its original name was Aram Bagh (Garden of Rest).

Jama Masjid

A splendid gateway leads to an interior courtyard surrounded by grand halls covered with profuse carvings on stone, heavily fashioned brackets, piers, and crossbeams. One can still spot remnants of decoration in gold and blue done in the prevalent Persian style.
