The earliest reference to Agra can be found in the epic Mahabharata. It was in the medieval period, however, that Agra rose to prominence. The relatively young city is home to India’s most famous attraction, the Taj Mahal, and the stupendous 16th-century Mughal-built Agra Fort, which encompasses within its walls the imperial city of the Mughal rulers. Today, the bustling streets of Agra are home to a thriving carpet industry, leather workers and marble and sandstone sculptors. It is possible to visit Agra as a day trip by train from Delhi; however, Cox & Kings suggests you spend at least 1 or 2 nights to give yourself the opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise or sunset. The Oberoi Amarvilãs in Agra enjoys an unparalleled location – all its rooms enjoy views of the Taj Mahal and it is most certainly worth the upgrade.
