Agra - flight to the Taj Mahal
Take cheap flights to Agra and visit the greatest monument to love - the Taj Mahal. Begun in 1632 by a grieving Shahjahan for his dead wife, this white marble mausoleum amazes and inspires everyone who visits Agra. The entrance arch alone soars more than 90 feet high and it is said the entire Koran is reproduced on its walls. The tomb itself is inlaid with semi-precious stones and is exquisite. Nearby and on a curved bank of the Jumna River, stands another monument which made Agra famous, the Agra Fort. As red in the sun as the Taj is white, the Agra fort stirs tales of Akbar the Great and the grandeur of the Moghul empire. With Agra flights, visit the sumptuous palaces and grand audience halls within its mighty battlements and for a magical moment see the Taj Mahal glow silver in the early light of dawn.
