Being a resident of Delhi and working with Alluring for 3 years, I decided to tour the most famous tourist circuit in India in 2017.
It usually starts with Delhi, but I started with Agra. Below is a diary of my journey of Rajasthan with ‘Taj Mahal’.
Destination One : Agra
The city of the Taj, as it is called, Agra made me realize why it is one of the most touristic destinations in India. The magical allure of the Taj Mahal attracts tourists to this wonderful city like a moth to a flame.
Agra, with its laid – back lifestyle and its immense wealth of architecture, handicrafts and jewelery, is amongst the most remarkable city of the world. In terms of ambiance it is still associated with its Mughal period led by Babur, who arrived in 1526.
Exploring the chambers of this royal residence, the Agra Fort, where Shah Jahan was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb was a chilling experience.
More chilling was realizing the fact that, the Shah spent his final years gazing at the tomb he had commissioned for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal from his prison in Agra Fort.
The next day started with an overland journey to Jaipur. En route I visited the ghost fortress of Fatehpur Sikri, the site of the mausoleum of Salim Chisti (a medieval Muslim saint). It is said if you make a wish at his tomb, he still grants the prayers of the pure hearted. It is not hard to imagine, what the court must have been in the days of its grandeur.
