Introducing Agra beyond Taj
Any mention of Agra is incomplete without the Taj Mahal. On closer inspection though, the city offers a more dynamic platter, with astounding architectural delights that enhance India’s voluminous cultural past, writes Swati Jain.
The historically rich heritage of Agra cannot be sufficiently described in words. It is synonymous to the majestic Taj Mahal, a splendid white tomb which has been an acclaimed emblem of love. The city of Agra, since ages, has been defined by this distinctive monument, built by Shah Jahan for his lady love, and will perhaps remain so for eternity. Undoubtedly, the Taj Mahal tops the list for everyone traveling to Agra and India at large. But the city hosts other delightful sights, which are overshadowed by one of the seven wonders of the world.
