Taj Mahal: Taj Mahal: The Taj Mahal, a world heritage site, is one of the elegant buildings in the world and a cynosure of Indian tourism. It means crown palace in Arabic language, situated on the right bank of river Yamuna above 48 meters. The fifth Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan constructed this beautiful edifice in loving memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. The team of 20,000 artisans, under the guidance of Ustad Isa Effendi, worked consistently for 22 years to construct the Taj Mahal. These artisans are from different geographies of the world consequently there were differences in languages and culture yet the engineering challenge involved them creatively that this masterpiece was constructed in the 17th century. It is a symbol of immortal love whose beauty enhances at the time of sunrise and sunset. The Taj Mahal blends Indo Islamic architectural design dedicated to Mughal era architectural patterns.
Agra Fort : The Agra Fort is also known as Red Fort because it is made of red sandstone. It was constructed by the third Mughal king Akbar. Inside Agra Fort, you can see some impressive Mughal-era buildings like Khas Mahal, Nagina Masjid, Jasmine Tower, Diwan-I-Khas, and many more palaces. It is encircled with two huge walls separated by a deep-water moat to prevent trespassing. There is a pavilion in front of khas mahal from where a traveler can enjoy a panoramic view of the Taj Mahal. After Akbar who constructed Agra Fort his son Jahangir and grandson Shah Jahan also ruled from this Fort and they dismantled some old palaces made of red sandstone and get erected the new one made of white marble and that is why there is no fixed date for its construction. After the Mughals, the British also ruled from this Fort and after independence 45 percent of this Fort was occupied by the Indian army having barracks for itself which is inaccessible for tourists.
Fatehpur Sikri : Fatehpur Sikri, a world heritage site is located 42 Km from Agra, also known as a ghost city or abandoned city was founded by the third Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1569. It comprises some glorious building like Diwan-I-Am, Diwan-I-Khas, Buland Darwaja, Jama Masjid and many more. Fateh means victory and Sikri means village, so Fatehpur Sikri collectively means victory village. It is said that king Akbar was not having any child from his three wives so he paid homage at Salim Chisti dargah and by the grace of Sufi saint Sheikh Salim Chisti he was blessed for a child who later became fourth Mughal king Jahangir. Here the traveler can see Buland Darwaza the largest gate of Asia.
Itmad-Ud-Daulah (Baby Taj) : It is the first building in Mughal history made of marble. It was constructed in 1628 by empress Nurjahan, wife of fourth Mughal Emperor Jahangir as a burial for her father Mirza Ghiyas Beg, who was an imperial officer in Jahangir court and was awarded the title of Itamad-Ud-Daulah which means in the Arabic language the lord treasurer. It is constructed on the bank of river Yamuna. Inside the edifice, there is the tomb of Mirza Ghiyaz Beg and his wife Mehrun Nisha which is made of yellow marble. It is believed by historians that most of the designs are copied from this building for the construction of the Taj Mahal which is why some tourists called it baby Taj.
Akbar Tomb (Sikandra): This is the tomb of the third Mughal Emperor Akbar and he started construction of this tomb when he was alive and after his demise, his son Jahangir completed the remaining construction in 1603-1613. The place where this tomb exists was founded by Sikandar Lodhi the second last king of the Lodhi dynasty that is why it is called Sikandra.
