    Join today's included excursion – one of the highlights of our tour – as we visit the extravagant Taj Mahal.

    Built between 1631 and 1648 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife, 20,000 men laboured for over 17 years to build this immense mausoleum of white marble and precious stone. Today, the Taj Mahal is widely regarded as a masterpiece of world heritage.

    Few forts in the world have a more fascinating story to tell than the great fort of Agra, an outstanding example of Mughal architecture and the seat and the stronghold of the Mughal Empire under successive generations.

    Situated on the west bank of the Yamuna with incredible views of the Taj Mahal, the Agra Fort was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1565. This magnificent citadel of red sandstone encompasses within its high ramparts, an enormous complex of courtly building, ranging in style from the early eclecticism of Akbar to the sublime elegance of Shah Jahan.

    Marvel at the lavishly decorated halls, courtyards and galleries including Jahangiri Mahal dating back to Akbar’s reign, the elegant marble hall of Khas Mahal, the royal baths of Sheesh Mahal, the lavishly decorated Diwan-i-Khas (hall of private audience) and the many-pillared Diwan-i-Aam (hall of public audience).

    The other impressive monuments include the Nagina Masjid (Jewel Mosque) built by Shah Jahan for his harem, and the Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque) and the octagonal tower of Musamman Burj, where Shahjahan was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb and spent the last years of his life.

    In this once-impregnable fortress, discover the many hidden rooms and immerse yourself in the grand legacy of the Mughals in India.

    This evening you have the opportunity to join us for a sunset visit to the Taj Mahal.
