The city of Agra stands proud on the famed Golden Triangle of India. Agra historically was the famous Mughal Capital of India, the seat of Mughal Empire heavyweights. The kingdom of riches, culture, fine arts and literature. Taj Mahal the famous World Wonder is situated in the heart of Agra, shadowing over the banks of river Yamuna. This mammoth marble monument was the vision of Emperor Shahjahan. He dedicated it to his most beloved wife, making this the most ambitious and expensive valentine to date. The Mughal heritage of Agra expands to the impressive Agra Fort, Sikandra, Itmad-ud-Daula and the lesser known Red Taj.
