The incredible Agra Fort and Taj Mahal – Agra, India

It’s one of those bucket list items for travellers, the Taj Mahal.

So, of course, we were headed to Agra so we could stand in front of this wondrous thing.

I mean, I couldn’t come to India and not see it – right?

First off, it must be said that the Taj Mahal is not the only drawcard of Agra – there is also the impressive Agra Fort, which is one of India’s only forts to have never been conquered.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is a popular tourist attraction – and for good reason.

It’s a great example of amazing architecture, and a structure containing such history.

The present-day walled city was built by the Mughal Empire, although a structure has stood there since the 11th century.

How incredible is that?

Take a look at the beauty:
  
  
  
  
  

Then the place we were most excited to visit – The Taj Mahal.

I can’t even put into words what it was like to see this Wonder of the World in person, how incredible this structure is – how intricately carved, how exquisitely designed.

It’s a Wonder for a reason – it is truly wondrous.

I honestly can’t do it justice in words, so I’ll just leave you to browse some of my photos from my Taj visit:

This was part of the Uncover India: Delhi to Goa tour with G Adventures. This was not a sponsored trip – this was my choice and paid for by myself.
