From 1526 to 1658 it achieved fame as the capital of the Mughal emperors and remains a major tourist destination because of its many splendid Mughal-era buildings, most notably the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri, all three of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

A visit to the Taj Mahal is one of the experiences of a lifetime; why not make it a point to visit Agra the next time you plan a holiday in India.
