For decades tourists and travelers from all over the world have been visiting the city of Agra for a lot of reasons. One of the most prominent reasons for their visit is the ancient Mughal monument and one of the Seven Wonders of the World Taj Mahal.
This monument alone attracts more than 50% of the tourists of India, the reason being it’s amazing architectural style and the story behind it. It is extremely popular among couples because it was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memories of his favorite and most beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. This monument was named after her and that is the reason why it is also called the symbol of love.
For anyone who is visiting this beautiful city for the first time, we always recommend then to get a pre-planned Delhi Agra day trip packages. Now, you might be wondering why Delhi is included in this tour package, right. Well, most of the tour packages start with Delhi as it is the destination that houses an international airport and it is located in close proximity from the ancient Mughal Capital Agra.
So, this is the reason why it is called the Delhi Agra taj mahal day trip. Your same day Taj Mahal tour by car will kick start at the Delhi international airport and from there you will travel to the city of Agra that is located approximately 250Km away from it. It only takes around 4 hours to travel that distance through the car with Delhi-Agra express highway. You will get to enjoy a small road trip in such tour packages in which you will be able to enjoy the roadside Dhaba food along with some delicious tea.
After arriving at the city of Agra you will be able to explore the beauty of the Taj Mahal. Besides the Taj Mahal, you will also be able to explore several other amazing monuments that this city has to offer.
These are the monuments that you will get to explore in n your same day Agra tour besides Taj Mahal:
Agra Fort is a gigantic monument that is located at the proximity from the Taj Mahal, it was made by Akbar for housing an army but later it was enlarged and beautified to a great extent and now it is considered to be one of the UNESCO world heritage sites. If you want to feel the beauty of the Mughal Era at its peak then you should explore the insides of this fort.
It is another UNESCO world heritage site that is located on the outskirts of the Agra city, it is filled with many ancient buildings that are the prime example of long-forgotten architectural style. This city was the former Mughal capital that was abandoned due to lack of water so you can expect a pretty great monument from this place.
