About Me
My name is Manoj Sharma, and I am a travel agent. I love living in Agra because I'm proud to be from this world-famous city that's 4 thousand years old. There are quite a few worthwhile places to visit in Agra and around, apart from India's most famous monument -- the more/less
You have to go to
The Taj Mahal looms fairytale-like from the banks of the Yamuna River. It has a rich history dating back to 1630 AD and is a tomb that contains the body of Mumtaz Mahal, the wife of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. He had it built as an ode to his love for her. It's made out of marble and took 22 years and 20,000 workers to complete.
Here's one fun activity you can do
Kinari Bazaar (street market) for its arts and crafts.
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
Mehtab Bagh Park offers a wonderful and special view of the Taj Mahal.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
There are many varieties of food to sample in northern India. A great restaurant in Agra is Pinch of Spice.
