Early morning, visit the Taj Mahal.
Built in the middle of the 17th century, the ethereal Taj Mahal took nearly 20 years, 20,000 workers, and skilled craftsmen and jewellers from Samarkhand, Constantinople, Kandahar, Baghdad, Bukhara, Syria, Persia, Balochistan, and Southern India, to complete!
The white marble mausoleum was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan in memory of his beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal, who died tragically young. The Taj Mahal is considered to be the greatest monument to love and is also the ‘Seventh Wonder’ of the modern world. With its beautiful minarets, a mosque, a fountain, water canals, gardens, and exquisite stone inlay work, the Taj Mahal is truly deserving of its UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
After breakfast, drive to Jaipur, stopping en route to see the Agra Fort.
Built in the 16th century by the Mughal Emperor Akbar, the Agra Fort stands testament to his reputation as one of the greatest and most prolific Mughal builders. The majestic Fort’s ramparts are built in red sandstone and rise up to 70 feet in height. Within the Fort’s complex lie the royal harem, an area where the women shopped, the royal quarters, the royal hall etc.
Upon arrival, check in to your hotel.
