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.
