Described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, this stunning mausoleum has become the de facto tourist emblem of India. It was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, whose death in childbirth in 1631 left the Emperor so heartbroken that his hair is said to have turned grey overnight.
The Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays.
The Taj Mahal is open for night viewing five nights per month, on full moon and two nights prior and two nights after. Please see below the dates for full moon. Tickets may be purchased through the hotel. The request for the same should be submitted 48 hours prior to the visit.
This was built by Empress Noorjahan (wife of Emperor Jehangir) between 1622-1628 A.D. in memory of her father, Mirza Ghiyas Beg, whose title was Itmad-Ud-Daulah, meaning “Reliance of The State”. Itmad-Ud-Daulah is the first building made of marble and with inlay work in India. It is considered to be the inspiration for the Taj Mahal and often referred to as “Baby Taj”.

Akbar’s Mausoleum at Sikandra
The sandstone and marble tomb of Akbar, the greatest of the Mughal emperors, is situated in the middle of a peaceful garden where deer graze, at Sikandra, 4 km northwest of Agra. Akbar started its construction himself, blending Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Christian motifs and styles, much like the syncretic religious philosophy he developed called Din-E-illahi.
