The Red Fort of Agra is the other great complex we visited in Agra. Mughal, Akbar the Great began building Agra Fort in 1156AD, but it wasn't finished until 1605AD when Shah Jahan (who also built the Taj Mahal) completed most of the buildings inside using his favourite white marble.

The fort was built along side the Yamuna River and has …

The Taj Mahal was built by the Muslim Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in commemoration of his favourite wife Empress Mumtaz Mahal. They were married in 1612AD and she died in 1631AD at the birth of their 14th child. The grief stricken …

Um leiš og viš komum til Agra žį langaši okkur aš fara strax aš skoša Taj mahal en okkur var rįšlagt aš bķša til 15:00 žannig aš viš žurfum aš bķša ķ nokkra klukkutima, mig sįrvantašk hįrteygju žar sem ég nįši aš tżna minni, žannig aš viš byrjum į žvķ aš labba um bęinn og aušvitaš skoša ķ leišinni en markmišiš var aš finna hįrteygju fórum į hįrgrei …

Agra and the Taj Mahal

A travel blog entry by mattandkate

We arrived in Agra after a four hour 'AC-3' train journey, fairly luxurious by Indian standards. First impressions would suggest that the home of India's most famous landmark is dirty, noisy and heavily congested. Unfortunately a day's exploring didn't change our opinion much and so we were keen to escape to the relative calm of the Taj Mahal. …

    Didn't live up to Lonely Planets 'top pick' rating

    Lonely Planet gave this hotel a 'top pick' rating for it reasonable price and effort to add extra value. In our experience the hotel did not provide this extra value. There were no towels, soap or toilet paper. The fan in the room was incredibly noisy and the pressure to eat at their expensive restaurant was high. To be fair, perhaps this hotel was the best of a bad lot in the same price range.

    Friendly staff. Clean rooms. We are staying in the just opened second hotel of Sheela which is 800 meters from the Taj and the road to it is a little dark in the evening.
