Your Guide to Taj Mahal Agra, India

Agra is invariably included on every first-time visitor's itinerary,
for Who visits India without a Taj Mahal tour?

Your Guide to Taj Mahal India Travel - Biz AgraComing for a Taj Mahal Tour ? Everyone knows Taj Mahal, one of 7 wonders of the world but many people have no clue about the city where it resides. That city is Agra and it is about 205 Km from Indian capital Delhi. Taj Mahal tour is one of the most popular tour in India.

Mughals were one of the most dynamic dynasties in the medieval world. Agra is home to the finest examples of Mughal architecture in India, of which the Taj is simply the most famous.

The visit to the Taj mahal, you have to experience it to believe it, picture do not do justice to it. Taj Mahal is a symbol of Love. All the tourists find it simply stunning!

A tour to Taj Mahal is a lifetime experience to remember forever as the historical monuments with in and around the city leave the travelers spellbound.

Although it's possible to see Agra on a day-trip from Delhi, the Taj alone deserves so much more - a fleeting visit would miss the different moods of Taj, as the light changes from sunrise to sunset.

I recommend the Taj Mahal to any romantically inclined person such as myself, but if you have a loving partner, bring her/him too.

The best time for Taj Mahal tours is October to March.
