Agra Heritage Walking Tour
A sunrise tour of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort from Delhi is a popular and memorable way to visit these iconic landmarks. Here’s some information on how you can organize such a tour:
Start Early: The tour typically begins very early in the morning to ensure that you arrive at the Taj Mahal in time for the sunrise. It’s recommended to leave Delhi in the middle of the night to reach Agra in the early morning.
Sunrise at the Taj Mahal: The main highlight of this tour is witnessing the sunrise at the Taj Mahal. The soft morning light creates a magical ambiance around the monument, and it’s less crowded during this time. Be sure to arrive at the East Gate well before sunrise to secure your entry.
Taj Mahal Visit: After watching the sunrise, you can explore the Taj Mahal. This stunning white marble mausoleum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Be prepared to spend a few hours exploring its architecture, history, and beautiful gardens.
Agra Fort: Following your visit to the Taj Mahal, you can head to the Agra Fort, another UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic fort showcases Mughal architecture and offers impressive views of the Taj Mahal from certain areas within the fort.
Breakfast: You can have breakfast at a local restaurant in Agra. Try some delicious North Indian cuisine.
Return to Delhi: After exploring the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, you can return to Delhi in your car. The tour typically ends by late afternoon or early evening, depending on your schedule and the traffic conditions.
