Situated on the banks of river Yamuna, the city of Agra has had a long tryst with history that dates back to the Mahabharata. It is during the Mughal rule that Agra assumed importance and Sikander Lodhi is known as its founder. It is here that Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal in memoriam of his queen Mumtaz Mahal.
Under British rule, the region was known as Presidency of Agra and was the seat of the government. It is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which are the chief Agra sightseeing attractions.
Known for its cultural diversity, Hindus, Muslims, and Christians are all found in this city. Agra is the birthplace of two religions—Din Illahi, which gained popularity during Akbar’s reign, and the Radhaswami Faith.
Though Hindi is the primary language, Urdu, Brijbhasa, and English are also widely used. The annual ‘Taj Mahotsav’ is a 10-day event that showcases the folk arts, music, and crafts of the region to locals and those sightseeing in Agra.
One of the attraction in the Heritage list is Fatehpur Sikri, which is about 35 km from the city. The Bulund Darwaza is the most prominent of the various historical buildings found here. Among other things to do in Agra, you can go on the Mughal Heritage Walk, which is a 1 km loop.
