Agra honeymoon tour: Shah Jahan's testimony of love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal, won it the stature of being one of the world's seven wonders, and a not-to-be-missed-destination for honeymooners.
Situated in Agra, 253kms from Delhi, the Taj Mahal can be covered on your way to or back from Rajasthan. To view this stately monument in entirety, you need at least half a day. It took almost 17 long years and an army of craftsmen and artisans to complete this monument to perfection. Crafted from white marble and complex inlay work using semi-precious stones and floral carvings, the architecture uses a fine blend of rounded minarets, domes and pillars which blend in wonderful harmony with the greenery of the rectangular gardens in the foreground.
The Taj Mahal is best viewed in the moonlight, and the authorities allow 400 tourists only to view this beautiful monument on just five moonlit days of the month. You can plan your trip to this romantic destination accordingly.
Agra was the capital of the Mughal Empire that ruled large parts of North India from 1526 till Shah Jahan shifted his base to Delhi in 1658. The city has other splendid monuments of the era which are also UNESCO World Heritage sites, like the Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. The Agra Fort was built in 1565 with red sandstone and was partially replaced with marble and pietra dura inlay at a later date.
