Known as the city of the Taj Mahal, Agra was the capital of the Mughal Empire during its golden age, between 1526 and 1658. Nestled in a bend of the holy Yumuna River, the UNESCO-listed Taj Mahal might be the city’s focal point but there is plenty more to explore. This includes two more World Heritage Sites in Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri (located just outside of the city), earning it its place as one of the apexes of India’s golden triangle alongside Delhi and Jaipur. You’ll find the legacy of the Mughal Empire spread along the banks of the Yumuna, an ever more extravagant string of tombs and mausoleums, building up to the Taj Mahal itself, built between 1631 and 1648 as the empire slowly crumbled away.
