Day 13 Agra – Delhi (204km/4hrs 30min)

An early morning visit to the Taj Mahal at sunrise.

Taj Mahal, the epitome of love, stands on the banks of the River Yamuna. Built in the 1648 by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, in memory of his empress Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. To experience the beauty of this architectural marvel, it needs to be viewed at different times of the day and year. Made entirely of white marble and decorated with exquisite pietra dura (stone inlay) work, different types of precious and semi-precious stones were used in the intricate inlay work done on the interiors. The white marble changes its hue with the variations in the daylight. In moonlight, particularly on the full moon night, the marble appears extraordinarily luminescent. This magnificent monument is built around a “four garden” plan, split by watercourses— reflecting the influence of the Persian architectural style. On a trip to Taj, it is always better to sit around in the garden and admire the scenic beauty rather than rushing through to see the monument. Immerse yourself in the serene atmosphere to make your visit even memorable. 

Important Note :

  • Taj Mahal is closed on Friday.

Afterwards return to hotel for breakfast.

Later in the afternoon check-out and depart for New Delhi International Airport / Railway Station or any convenient point for your onward journey.
