Agra is a historical city about 4-5 hours drive south-east of Delhi (capital city of India). The historical cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur form the famous "Golden Triangle" of India and a major tourist attraction with the many ancient monuments.
Agra itself is famous for two main monuments, the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort, plus some other less known ones. My wife and I visited Agra in January 2008 and managed to go to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. I will share with you information and photographs of my trip to Agra, which hopefully will be useful to you.
