More often than not, a first time visitor to India is likely to first visit Agra via New Delhi to have a glimpse of the world famous Taj Mahal in Uttar Pradesh. Apart from the legendary Taj Mahal, the other major landmark in this city is the Agra Fort. Although a major city by itself, apart from being an important handicrafts center, Agra Tourism is the raison of this city, where everything moves like clockwork routine around this sole activity. Once in New Delhi, the visitor has many options for New Delhi to Agra travel; one may travel to Agra by air, or comfortable and convenient super fast trains, or by luxury limousines sliding smoothly on superfine highways.
A dream trip to Taj Mahal
A trip to the celebrated Taj Mahal is like a dream come true. Not only the first timers, the monument invariably continues to casts its spell even on the old timers. Its sheer beauty keeps on haunting even days, weeks and months after the visitor has wrapped up his her trip to India, compelling him her to return to Agra again and again. One may even assert that this ethereal building makes the visitor almost equally lovelorn, as was its creator Shah Jehan for his deceased wife and beloved Mumtaz Mahal, in whose memory this wondrous monument was originally erected. The most spectacular aspect of its translucent architecture is its capacity to present itself in varying hues at different moments of the day, as its aspect magically transforms itself if witnessed either at dawn or at dusk, either in brilliant sunshine at noon, or in the dreamy moonlight of a full moon night.
In any case, one is forced by various material constraints to stick to the itinerary already laid down. In view of these limitations, the visitor is often constrained to wrap up his her visit to Agra after visiting the Agra Fort and numerous other major and minor sites in and around the city to move on. Various studies on visitor preferences indicate that the visitor has three main options beyond Agra: either the visitor moves on to Jaipur in Rajasthan while sticking with the oft-travelled Golden Triangle Circuit of New Delhi Agra Rajasthan to share the magnificent bounties that state has to offer; otherwise, if the visitor is a bit more adventurous, he she may head straight to Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh to have a glimpse of the breathtaking beauty of the copulating couples in the Bundela landmark and move on still further south; the third major direction is a trip to the timeless city of Varanasi further east in Uttar Pradesh itself, which truly represents the timeless appeal of this ancient civilization, which makes India the unique destination.
When we say Taj Mahal Tours everyone thinks a visit to white marble building. But you should know City of Taj Mahal (Agra) itself has many marvelous places which could enhance your travel to Taj Mahal.
Nearest tourist sopt to Taj Mahal is massive fort known as Agra Fort. There are so many palaces inside this fort that one could easily make out the lifestyle of Mughal Kings used to be. Stunning view of Taj Mahal from one of the palace is must watch place.
The other tourist spots are Aram Bagh, Itma-ud-dulah (known as mini TajMahal) , Chini ka Makbra and Sikendra (tomb of Akbar top most famous king of Mughal dynasty).
Apart from Taj Mahal other cities nearby and related to Taj Mahal Tours are Fatehpur Sikri and Bhartpur (Bire Sancutary) is surely a part of Taj Mahal Visit. Likewise if you go little further, Jaipur is the part of this tour.
Orchha, Khajuraho, Varanasi and Jhansi cann’t be seprated with Taj Tours. I rarely find tourist who visit these places, but not Taj Mahal. So, ultimately tour is amalgam of all these tourist cities.
Now, the price concern for tourists is how to complete this trip, means where to start and where to end. Surely, it would depend upon your flight itinerary. Incase you land in captial City New Delhi, you can visit Agra Orchha, Khajuraho, Varanasi and back Delhi. Ideal days for the trip is Nine to Ten. But if you arrive Mumbai just start the trip in reverse order
Also, when you plan to Visit Taj Mahal with Rajasthan you have so many options open. But I suggest that first visit Taj Mahal because you are almost fresh on your first day of arrival. Go first Taj Mahal from Delhi and then Jaipur, Pushkar, Jodhpur and Udaipur etc.,
At last a well exercised tour program will provide you opportunity of maximum exposure of the hidden tourism wealth near Taj Mahal.
