Recently I have decided to have a trip to Asia. My first destination was India. And unbelievably I fall in love with Agra. This city was awesome. I've tried to write a brief about my trip and I started with Agra. I was wondering if sharing it with you, would be a good idea.
· Taj Mahal
This White Marble Mausoleum combines elements from Islamic, Persian, Ottoman & Indian architectural art. You can experiment with Love, beauty, death and unparalleled elegance in this monument which has been built in order of Emperor Sha Jahan in honor of her beloved wife as an immortal reminder of eternal Love.
· Agra Fort
It has been served as a mighty fort for the Akbar, the early Mughal ruler and later, Sha Jahan used his favorite building material to turn this fort into a palace. It is a melange of red sandstone and white marble, and a wide moot is circling it.
· Fatehpur Sikri
Fatehpur Sikri is a small town which has been built in 16 century under the rule of Akbar and later it has been abandoned and now became a tourist attraction in Agra. It left an impression on us by its 40 different buildings including Akbar personal airy, multi-story palace particularly striking. Also, he treated each of his wives to their own palace.
