Agra

Agra is home to one of the most iconic buildings in the world – the Taj Mahal. Early morning is the best time to visit the Taj Mahal. Sunrise is the best time to see this iconic spectacle, when the soft morning light plays on the marble of the tomb and the reflections in the still waters.

The inspiration behind the Taj Mahal was when Emperor Shah Jahan’s third wife Mumtaz Mahal, died while giving birth to their fourteenth child. He was completely grief-stricken and decided to build the monument in her honour.

It took over 20 years to complete with thousands of artisans and craftsmen working on the construction day and night. Shah Jahan entrusted the project to a board of architects who were under imperial supervision. Legend has it that he also planned to build a black replica of the Taj on the opposite bank of the Yamuna River in which he wished to be buried himself.
