A very basic room in a basic hotel. Don't expect luxury! However, it's reasonably clean and conveniently located to sightseeing spots, so getting to them won't cost a lot of time and money. Staff is friendly. Bathroom is Western toilet with shower/faucet combo in same space, meaning no tub or stall, so you are showering in front of the toilet! It's not as bad as it sounds, honestly. Better than camping. Overall, would recommend as I don't see why not!

... as the Koh-i-Noor. The victorious Babur stayed in the fort and the palace. The emperor Humayun was crowned here in 1530. Humayun was defeated at Bilgram in 1540 by Sher Shah.

Realizing the importance of its central situation, Akbar made it his capital ...
... comes to an end I know I will miss wandering the streets and lanes of the oldest parts of cities like Agra, Varanasi, Bhaktapur and even Old Delhi the most. These places have been the centers of Indian life for centuries and continue to be for hundreds of millions of people and have an energy and vitality I've experienced nowhere else. What I won't miss is all the kids telling me I look like Ali Baba (I haven't shaved for over a month!).
Day 2 in Agra we ...
... out things we didn't know (like the Quranic verses on the main entranceway which were actually carved in larger font at the top - so that it all looked the same size when viewed from below), and masterfully told us all the stories - he was an interactive type of guide who asked us questions ("Why were the minarets not damaged by lightning when the dome was?" "Er....?" Correct answer - the minarets had semi-precious stones inlaid - these were thought to be protective. The dome ...
... a very interesting place again made of red sandstone but the designs came from many different religions with stars, lotus flowers and vertical designs from Persia. The king was married to three wives all of different religions. The first and most favorite wife was Hindu. The other wife came from Goa and was Christian and finally the third wife a Muslim from Turkey. I thought this concept of accepting all religions was very interesting and special. All ...
