Not only is it full of historic sites, but there’re also other things you can see and do here.

 

If you’ve already visited Delhi, you could confine your trip to just Agra and Jaipur and do both places extensively. In that case, an agra-jaipur tour would be just fine for a few days. If this sounds like your holiday, may we suggest a few must spots for you in Agra?

 

Apart from the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, there are other lesser-known historic sites that will blow your mind. For instance, how about visiting these sites?

Mariam-uz-Zamani was the Queen consort of Emperor Akbar and the mother of Emperor Jahangir. Her mausoleum, built by Emperor Jahangir in memory of his mother can be seen in a suburb of Agra called Sikandara.

 

Chini Ka Rauza

 

Chini Ka Rauza is the tomb of Emperor Shah Jahan’s prime minister, Allama Afzal Khan. This monument contains all the items related to a funeral and is situated on River Yamuna’s eastern bank.  The word ‘Chini’ refers to Chinese and ‘Rauza’ stands for ‘tomb’. It was built between 1628 and 1639, using Indo-Persian architectural styles. It is known for its superb use of glazed tiles.

 

Dayal Bagh

 

Dayal Bagh or "Garden of the Merciful" is a self-contained colony in Agra. Here, the inhabitants lead an extremely disciplined, active and cooperative life, adhering to spiritual tenets of their faith. The Radhasoami faith has its headquarters here where the Dayal Bagh sect also lives.

Adjacent to the Soami Bagh is the tomb of Swamiji Maharaj, the founder of the Radhasoami faith. It is built entirely in white marble and has elegant pietra dura inlaid on its interior walls.

 

Mehtab Bagh

 

North of the famed Taj Mahal and facing the Agra Fort and River Yamuna, the Mehtab Bagh is an extremely scenic spot Agra boasts of. It is also called the Moonlight Garden. It was the last of the 11 Mughal gardens built on similar lines on the banks of the Yamuna.

3 Forts That You Can't Afford to Miss on Your Delhi Trip

Your Delhi Agra Jaipur tour by car package, or the golden triangle tour, might already be having all the wonders of Delhi. But neither any man nor any plan is always perfect. So before you hop into your ride for Jaipur to outstation by car, here are 3 historical forts of Delhi that “must” visit to make your Delhi experience unforgettable.


Red Fort:


Red Fort was built in the year 1648 by the fifth Mughal emperor, Shahab-Ud-Din Muhammad Khurram, as the palace for his capital “Old Delhi”; called “Shahjahanabad” in those times.

Hailed as the zenith of Mughal Architecture, the many pavilions of the fort contain architectural elements that represent a fusion of Mughal, Persian, Timurid, and Hindu traditions. UNESCO identified this 17th-century marvel as a world heritage site in 2007, with its official name Red Fort Complex.


Purana Qila (Old Fort):


Renovated and renamed to “Shergarh” in 1533 by emperor Sher Shah Suri of Suri dynasty, the Archeological survey of India concluded the fort to be the capital of Pandava kingdom Indraprastha. Edward Lutyens, the chief architect of New Delhi, aligned the Rajpath with Purana Qila.

Old Fort has three arched gateways, which are still in use. First is “Bara Darwaza”, or Big Gate, which faces west. The second gate is called Humayun gate, or more popularly known as South gate by the locals. Finally, the third one, Forbidden Gate, popularly known as 'Talaqi Gate'.

 

The fort has been witness to many great events of historical significance. Like the coronation of the great Hindu king Hem Chandra Vikramaditya; or Hemu. The event took place at the premise of Purana Qila after Hemu defeated Akbar’s forces in the Battle of Delhi in 1556. You simply can’t afford to miss a visit to the ancient and historical Purana Qila when planning your Delhi Agra Jaipur tour by car package.

 

Salimgarh Fort:


Built in 1546 in a former Yamuna(river) island by Salim Shah Suri, Salimgarh Fort is a witness to the 15-year pause in Mughal reign over India. The pause happened because of the defeat of Mughal ruler Humayun by the hands of Sher Shah Suri, founder of the Suri dynasty in India. Aurangzeb later turned Slaimgarh fort into a prison, a practice which was continued by British rulers of India to push back the revolt of 1857. After the revolt was put down, Britishers started using the fort for an army base camp but soon resumed its usage as a prison during the Subhash Chandra Bose led Indian National Army(INA) revolt.

After understanding the historical and archeological importance of the site, UNESCO declared the fort complex as a World Heritage site in 2007.

 

If you are planning to go Jaipur to outstation by car to visit the many monuments of old and New Delhi, then we, at ICT, could help you get the best out of your tour plan.
