City Information

In the 16th and 17th centuries, Agra was the capital of India under the Mughals, and its superb monuments date from this era. They include the magnificent Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal, which draws millions of people from all over the world.

Described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, this stunning mausoleum has become the de facto tourist emblem of India. It was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, whose death in childbirth in 1631 left the Emperor so heartbroken that his hair is said to have turned grey overnight.

The Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays.

The resort can arrange complimentary transfers to and from Amarvilas in battery operated environment friendly buggies. The monument is located just four minutes from Amarvilas.

Fatehpur Sikri
This magnificent fortified city was the capital of the Mughal Empire between 1571 and 1585. Today, it remains a perfectly preserved example of a Mughal city at the height of the Empire's splendour. Spending a night here would enable you to watch the impressive sunset over the ruins.

One and a half hour drive from Amarvilas.

Agra Fort
Emperor Akbar began the construction of the massive red sandstone Agra Fort on the banks of the Yamuna River in 1565. Additions were made until the rule of his grandson, Shah Jahan, under whose reign it was partially converted into a palace.

Fifteen minutes drive from Amarvilas.

Akbar's Mausoleum at Sikandra
The sandstone and marble tomb of Akbar, the greatest of the Mughal emperors, is situated in the middle of a peaceful garden where deer graze, at Sikandra, 4 km northwest of Agra. Akbar started its construction himself, blending Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Christian motifs and styles, much like the syncretic religious philosophy he developed called Din-i-ilahi.

Forty-five minutes drive from Amarvilas.

Kinari Bazaar
The alleyways of Kinari Bazaar, or old marketplace, start near the Jama Masjid. There are several distinct areas whose names are relics of the Mughal period, though they don't always bear relation to what is sold there today.

Forty five minutes drive from Amarvilas.

Dayal Bagh Temple
The white marble Dayal Bagh Temple of the Radah Soami religion has been under construction since 1904 and is not expected to be completed until some time in the 21st century. If you're lucky, you may get to see the pietra dura (inlay work) in process.

One hour drive from Amarvilas.

Special Events
In February, the Taj Mahotsav (festival) is held in Shilpgram, a crafts village and open-air emporium situated about a kilometre along the road running from the eastern gate of the Taj Mahal. The festival features live performances of music and dance.
