Day Trip from New Delhi
Agra is one of the ideal places for a day trip from New Delhi, located some 200 km away. Agra has three UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort in the city and Fatehpur Sikri nearby. There are also many other buildings and tombs from Agra's days of glory as the capital of the Mughal Empire. The sites are some of the wonders of the world and no trip to India is complete without at least one visit to the Taj. It is easy to visit Agra as a comfortable day trip by train from Delhi. Rise early in the morning and hop on to Bhopal Shatabdi Express. Arrive refreshed in Agra and, depending on your budget, either rent a car for the day or use rickshaws to get around. A visit to the Taj, followed by Agra Fort does not take a great deal of time. Add a visit to Akbar's tomb and/or itmad-ud-daulah (auto-rickshaw or taxi required), and you will still have time for a comfortable lunch and some rest before catching the return train in night. You can also hire a car from New Delhi and use the all new Yamuna Expressway to reach Agra. It just takes around two hours. With a hired car, it is even possible to have a visit to Fatehpur Sikri for the complete Agra visit.
