Built in the 16th century by wife of Humayun, the second Mughal emperor, this is a wonderful early example of Mughal architecture. Drop to hotel and rest. Program subject to arrival time.
||Delhi, excursion to Agra
||Morning drive to train station and take express train to Agra. Train travel is popular and comfortable mode of transport in India. Train usually takes 2-3 hours. After reaching Agra, visit to the world-famous Taj Mahal built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, whose death in childbirth in 1631 left the Emperor so heartbroken that his hair is said to have turned gray overnight. Also visit Agra Fort, constructed by Emperor Akbar in 1695 on the banks of the Yamuna River. Initially the fort was a military structure, but during Shah Jahan’s reign it had partially become a palace. Also visit to Itmad-ud-Daula dubbed as “Baby Taj”. Smaller tomb of Mughal's nobleman built from the white marble was early precursor of much more monumental Taj Mahal. Drop back to train station for onward train back to Delhi.
