  • Taj Mahal

    Taj Mahal

    The world's greatest and possibly most extravagant monument to love is the iconic Taj Mahal. Completed by Emperor Shah Jahan in 1653, in memory of his late wife, its marble facades, intricate carvings and semi-precious stones bewitch all who gaze upon her. Costing in excess of 3 million rupees, it took over 20 years to build. Sunrise is a particularly magical time to visit when the marble transforms its hues from gold to pink and red in the changing light. The rooftop terraces in Taj Ganj offer a mesmerising view of the Taj in the moonlight as does Mehtab Bagh.

  • Tigers

    Tigers

    Looking for tigers is one of the greatest and often most exciting wildlife experiences on the on the planet, because not only do they hold a particular mythical hold on us as apex predators, but also because they are both very elusive and surprisingly well camouflaged. Historically they would have hidden during the day to avoid being seen but over the years, thanks to protection measures and tourism activities, some tigers, both male and females within the tourism zones of parks have grown up with vehicles and trained elephants and have become habituated to visitors each day, and therefore do not mind being viewed or watched going about their daily lives, with their cubs and even hunting.

  • Agra Fort

    Agra Fort

    Agra Fort is similar in layout to the Red Fort in Delhi, but considerably better preserved, as much of Delhi Fort was razed by the British after the Mutiny. As much as palace as a defensive structure, it is also constructed mainly from red sandstone. Emperor Akbar, king at 14, began consolidating his empire and, as an assertion of his power built the fort in Agra between 1565 and 1571, at the same time as Humayun's Tomb in Delhi. Emperor Shah Jahan added to the fort and ended up a prisoner in it. The fort has a beautiful view of his masterpiece, the Taj Mahal, on a clear day.
