Later on, it’s time for the stand-out highlight of your trip: the Taj Mahal. Take your time, soak up the view and admire the exquisite marble façade of what is without doubt the most majestic building on the planet. The next day, set off on a Mughal Heritage walk, learning more about Agra’s fascinating history and taking a relaxing stroll through the flower-filled Mehtab Bagh Gardens, which also afford wonderful views across the Yamuna River to the Taj Mahal.
