DAY 3 - Agra

Transfer to Agra by train or car.

Agra: This city is globally known as city of Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the World and an UNESCO World Heritage Site. But this royal city has many monuments that epitomize the Mughal Architecture. The crowning glory of the city is obviously the Taj, a monument to love and imagination of a great Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan.

Taj Mahal: Emperor Shah Jahan built the incomparable Taj Mahal, perhaps the most perfect architectural monument in the World, as a memorial to his wife, Mumtaz Mahal that epitomizes Islamic architecture in its purest form. The Tomb is encased in white marble which is decorated with flawless inlaid design of flowers and calligraphy cut from precious gems. Below the Dome, in a dimly lit chamber, lie the mortal remains of Shah Jahan and his beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal, reminding the visitors of their undying love.

Agra Fort is another UNESCO World Heritage site. The construction of this massive fort began in 1565 under Emperor Akbar and continued by Emperor Janahgir and Emperor Shah Jahan.
Other monuments in Agra, among others, are Itemad Ud Daula, Tomb of Akbar, Mehtab Bagh, Jama Masjid, Chini ka Rauza.

DAY 4 - Fatehpur Sikri - Jaipur

Transfer to Fatehpur Sikri by car.

The founding of Fatehpur Sikri reads like a fairytale. When all else had failed, the Mughal Emperor Akbar came here in search of the renowned Sufi mystic, Sheikh Salim Chishti, to ask the blessings for a son. His prayer was heard and soon a son was born. In honor of the saint, Akbar named the prince, Salim, and vowed to build a new city. And so Fatehpur Sikri, a magnificent new city rose on the craggy hills, 40 Kilometers from Agra and served as the capital of the Mughal Empire for 16 memorable years between 1570 and 1586.

Today, Fatehpur Sikri is a deserted, a phantom city. But the inner citadel is immaculately preserved. Its palaces, baths, royal mint, courts, walls and gardens still stand in splendid homage to a great emperor. The heart of the palace complex however, is very much alive. The white marble tomb of Sheikh Salim Chishti is set in the courtyard of the Royal Mosque. Thousands of pilgrims still come here to pray for the gift of a son.

The city was intended to embody the noble ideals and the humanitarian bent of this dynamic emperor, Akbar. Although a Muslim, Akbar was famous for his incredible tolerance towards other religions and he is said to have indulged in a great deal of study and discussion in this field. He also created a new religion, Deen - e - Elahi, that attempted to fuse positive aspects of all the major religions into one composite whole.

The finest monuments within this area are the Diwan - i - Am, Diwan - i - Khas, Panch Mahal, Jama Masjid, Buland Darwaza and the tomb of Saint Sheikh Salim
