Taj Mahal (A flawless architectural creation)

Perhaps none of the other historical monuments have evoked as much awe and admiration from tourists and travelers alike, as the resplendent Taj Mahal-fondly called by people as the ultimate symbol of love, from a great Mughal Emperor to his beloved. So overwhelming is the spectacular beauty and presence of this marbled mausoleum that centuries later today, even the very place where it has been located-Agra-has been immortalized as the City of the Taj. The architectural excellence of the mausoleums, the fort and the palaces is a vibrant remainder of the mausoleums, the fort and the palaces is a vivid reminder of the capital in the capital in the 16th and early 17th centuries.

Agra Fort: Constructed by the great Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D. the fort is an exquisite illustration of design and architecture. Within the fort are a number of exquisite buildings, including the Moti Masjid, Diwane-I-Am, Diwani-I-Khas and musanman Burj, where the Emperor Shah Jahan died in imprisonment besides jahangirs place, Khaas Mahal and the Sheesh Mahal.

Itmad - ud daula : Towards the north of the fort and across the river yamuna are several fine examples of Mughal architecture. The Itmad -ud -daula was constructed by the empress Noor Jehan as a memorial to her father Mirza Ghiyas Beg , is beautifully ornamented with pietra dura inlay and lattice work marble screens.

Chini Ka Roza :The tomb of Afzal Khan, the persian poet and minister at Shah Jehan's court gets its name from the brightly colored glazed tiles that adorn it . It lies just 1km beyond
Itmad -ud -daula.

Sikandara : 12 km the tomb of Akbar, begun by the emperor himself and accomplished by his son, Jehangir. This royal decorated structure is a deliberate blend of styles.

Radhaswamy Satsang, Dayalbagh : This highly ornate memorial to the founder of the Radhaswamy satsang has been in the making for many years and is still being worked upon. It is entirely in marble, upon which every manner of ornamentation has been applied.

Fatehpur Sikri : A royal city perfectly preserved, Fatehpur Sikri provides a marvelous rendezvous with the past. Akbar embarked on the construction of a new capital here when a prophecy of the birth of a male royal heir, by the Sufi Saint Salim Chisti of Sikri, came true.
