Visiting Agra first time
Hi, I'll visit Agra for first time, any suggestions on places, shopping and food wise?
Hello Tanuja, Agra is synonymous with the glorious Taj Mahal. The city is a popular travel destination among Indian and international travellers alike since the Taj Mahal is both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the new Wonders of the World. The Taj Mahal, with its beautiful calligraphy and inlay work, exemplifies the intricacies of Mughal architecture at its best. True romantics can visit the Taj Mahal early in the morning or on a moonlit night, as it celebrates Emperor Shah Jahanâ€™s love for his wife Mumtaz. Agra is also a popular shopping destination where you can buy marble with inlay work, semi-precious stones, jewellery and handicrafts. Agra is home to Mughlai cuisine and here you can sample some of the best curries, rotis, naans and biryani. For those with a sweet tooth, there is the famous Agra ka petha. Another local specialty is the daal moth, which is available all over Agra and makes for a crunchy snack.
