Agra Excursions

On Tours to Uttar Pradesh the most fascinating travel destination you will find is Agra. Every tourist on an escapade to measure the splendor of the attractive spots in Uttar Pradesh makes a point to visit Agra that houses one of the very elegant Seven Wonders of the World like Taj Mahal. However along with Taj Mahal, the tourists also engage in exploring the charming influence of the imposing Agra Fort, the very gorgeous Rambagh Gardens, Itimad Ud Daulah and the Chini ka Rauza. There are innumerable sights to relish. But once all the sites are covered the pleasure travelers like to take excursions from Agra to nearby destinations.

On Agra excursions the travelers basically head for mostly two destinations. They like to visit Fatehpur Sikri, the ruined fortified city. It usually takes a daylong travel to reach here. But for the convenience an overnight stay is suggested in the hotels in Fatehpur Sikri. Fatehpur Sikri having served as a capital for Akbar, the powerful Mughal emperor, was soon abandoned after it suffered water scarcity.

Today this city is taken in to enjoy strolls within the ruined city walls. This apart, on excursions around Agra this place is best to relish the splendid charm of mosques, palaces and tombs. Some of the must visit attractions include Jama Masjid, Buland Darwaza, Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti, Palace of Jodh Bai, Hawa Mahal, Panch Mahal, Birbal Bhavan, Diwan-I-Khas, Diwan-I-Am, Hiran Minar and Karawan Sarai.

Other most sought after destination on excursions from Agra is Mathura, the birthplace of the Hindu deity Lord Krishna. It is a very popular pilgrimage site for Hindus. Some of the fascinating spots that constitute the impeccable beauty of this city are Dwarkadheesh Temple, Potara-Kund, Katra Masjid, Kans Qila, Sati Burj and Vishram Ghat.
