Once you are done seeing Taj Mahal, you will be taken straight to Agra Red Fort. This monument was also built in the 16th century and is located near the pretty green gardens of Taj Mahal. The powerful establishment is made of red sandstone and is one of the best examples of Indian architecture. This was also the place where Shah Jahan was kept as a prisoner by his son Aurangzeb. A lot will be revealed to you when you visit this fine spot. Itmad Ud Daulah

Finally you will be seeing Itmad Ud Daulah on your Same Day Taj Mahal Tour. This is India’s first tomb that was constructed out of marble. It signalled the new era of Mughal architecture and was made during Jahangirs period. The tomb is 21 metres high and was constructed in the memory of Mirza Ghiyas. The word Itmad Ud Daulah means pillar of the state and was influenced by Persian and Islamic style of architecture. The wall paintings are equally beautiful to look at.

Your same day Agra tour obviously doesn’t finish there. By the time you are done seeing the Itmad Ud Daulah, you will be taken to grab lunch in a fine AC restaurant after which you can visit other beautiful spots such as the Kinari Bazar of Agra and other fabulous locations such as art galleries and Mughal jewellery stops. Don’t forget to enjoy a nice fragrant cup of hot masala tea served in an earthen cup. The snacks here are equally delicious. So feel free to grab some.
