Jaipur - Agra (250km)
In the early morning at 5:30 AM, the driver will receive you and head towards Agra. On the way to Agra, stop at Fatehpur Sikri, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1986.
Upon arrival in Agra, head towards the magical allure of the Taj Mahal, which is one of the most magnificent monuments built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1632-1654 A.D in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaj Mahal. Enjoy a guided tour of the other spectacular sights of Agra.
Next, proceed to Agra Fort. Spread over a sprawling 94 acres, this massive red sandstone fort lies parallel to the Yamuna River and is situated 2 kilometres northwest of the Taj Mahal. The Agra Red Fort was originally occupied by Sikarwar Rajputs and was later captured by the Lodi rulers of Delhi. In 1526, after the Lodi’s were defeated in the Battle of Panipat, the victor Emperor Babur took over the fort. After losing the fort briefly to the Suri rulers, it was eventually reclaimed by Akbar, who made Agra his capital.
Have lunch at a restaurant of your choice. Suggestions will of course be given on where to eat if you wish. Afterwards, head toward Baby Taj - the Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulah is a Mughal mausoleum in the city of Agra. Often described as a 'jewel box,' it is regarded as a draft of the Tāj Mahal. Then, you will be transferred back to Jaipur. Upon arrival in Jaipur, the driver will drop you off at your designated place with lots of good memories of the tour.
