Agra is a city on the banks of the Yamuna River in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Agra is bound to take you back in time with its Mughal-era architecture, timeless masterpieces all of which are UNESCO world heritage sites. A mixture of cultures, ideas and spices is most definitely something to look forward to. Being a sheltering fort for Sultans and a capital during Mughal times, Agra sure has a lot of stores to tell. The land of Taj, Agra is one of the most popular cities in the world. It is frequented by tourists from each corner of the world. After all, it houses one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Located on the banks of the Yamuna River, Agra is also known for its immensely popular sweet dish, i.e., Petha. It is a part of the Golden Tourism Triangle along with Delhi and Jaipur.
- Agra is one of the two cities in India which houses three UNESCO world heritage sites, the other being Delhi. These UNESCO monuments at Agra include the Agra Fort, the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri, the twin city of Agra which was founded by Akbar. Hence, it is no wonder it forms a part of the golden tourism triangle and is one of the most-visited places.
- Agra Fort was not built by Shah Jahan. Whenever someone questions about the history of Agra Fort, we always end up saying it was built by Shah Jahan, a Mughal King, in the early 17th century but do you know the Agra Fort was actually constructed as a brick fort by the Rajput kings before the Mughal dynasty came into power, later on, it was controlled by the Lodhis until the Mughal King Akbar renovated it by using red sandstone. However, the current building of the fort was shaped by Shah Jahan.
- Taj Mahal is a white marble built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. In Arabic, the Taj Mahal is known as "crown of palaces”. About 28 types of precious and semi-precious stones were used for adorning the Taj and they were sourced from Tibet, China, Sri Lanka and some parts of India. Emperor Shah Jahan intended to build another Taj Mahal in black marble across the river but a war with his sons interrupted these plans.
