    Just visited for the first time. Best advice is hire a guide! We booked an Uber from our hotel in New Delhi to Agra. It was a four and a half hour drive and I would probably take the train next time as both the Uber driver and the 4 times as expensive driver we hired through the hotel for the return trip started dozing off. I am sure they work long hours, but it made for an intense ride and we would have prefered a relaxing train ride. We spent the night in Agra so we could be at the Taj Mahal first thing in the morning when it was cool and there were less people. Our guide had a lot of great information, handled the tipping for us, kept the solicitors at bay, and knew all the best photo spots to take our picture. I was thankful that we hired a guide and would tell all my friends and family to do the same.

    We took the Delhi to Agra one-day trip on April 2nd 2022. The excellent (!) driver vishal picked us up at our hotel and took us to Agra in a neat and comfortable car. On the way he stopped several times to let us have a quick glance at some landmarks in Delhi - we really enjoyed that! The ride to Agra took about 3 hours in total and we added a quick stop for breakfast and a coffee somewhere along the way. Once we reached Agra we met our guide haider ali, who took us to the Taj Mahl, the Agra Fort and a craftsmen demonstration of Indian marble and inlay art. Haider was very energetic and we enjoyed our time with him very much. He took a lot of pictures, knew a lot of good spots to take pics and was very knowledgeable about the sights as well. We had lunch at a pretty fancy place for Indian standards and it was also really delicious! At the craftsman's stop we were not pressured to buy anything, but we just had a look around and listened to the demonstration.

    Another mausoleum (like the Taj Mahal) but on a smaller scale, you get to see things more up close and personal. And there are no crowds. It is a complex of buildings, also including gates, wells, fountains and gardens. In many ways this is better than the Taj due to the quiet, and ability to see it all up close. One hour is all you’ll need. Do it.

    History, art and culture full of interesting stories of the Mughal era. Lovely pictures to take besides the interesting stories and art!

    This palace inside Agra Fort is probably the most significant building inside the fort complex, and housed the women of the royal household. There’s no much evidence of that, though I thought the most significant structures are the multistoried red sandstone walls and the huge bowl used as a bath.

    My wife and I visited the Jama Masjid as part of a Golden Triangle tour with the TripaDeal group in February.

    It was very interesting, but you must remove your shoes, women have to wear long gowns and men, if wearing shorts, have to wear a "wrap". These are hired at the entrance.

    It has very interesting architecture and was very busy, with a few different entrances.

    Well worth visiting the largest mosque in India.

    The court of public hearings. Since this was dedicated to the general public, it is large in size, although lacks the grandeur. The arches of the ceilings are intricately carved and are pure works of art. The place is clean and well maintained too.

    Better than New Delhi or Jaipur - this station is cleaner and has more character than the others. Our overnight train to Allahabad was only a little late getting in and I shared a four berth cabin with a holy man !

    The Chai wallah arrived about 6:30am and I had a welcome cup of Masala Chai for breakfast.

    Located to the south of the Kanch Mahal in Sikandra is a partially ruined structure known as the Lodhi Tomb. The monument resembling a palace of some kind is believed to have been built by Sikander Lodi.
