Agra is home to the magnificent Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The city is just a few hours' drive from Delhi. Part of India's rich history since 1000 B.C, the city was first referred to as 'Agra' by the Greek philosopher, Ptolemy in 200 A.D.
The city rose to prominence, as the capital of the Mughal Empire in the 16th Century. Many of the city's acclaimed heritage sites date back to this era, including the resplendent Taj Mahal. Carrying the artistic heritage of the Mughal Empire into the present day, the streets of Agra are dotted with ancient buildings existing in happy harmony with modern day shops and houses. From its fine marble inlay artwork to its delightful sweet shops, the city offers much to cherish.

"I have travelled a lot and I cannot remember staying in such a nice hotel. The food was superb and the chef seemed to take a personal interest in every guest. I was sorry that my stay was only for 2 nights, but the best 2 nights of my India tour."

Enriched with a rich historical and cultural backdrop, the city of Agra dates back to several centuries. It finds mention in the Mahabharata (third century BC), where it has been referred to as Agrabana or Paradise City. In the 16th and 17th centuries it became the capital of the Mughal Empire and many of the city's best-known monuments were built during this period. The city reached its zenith between 1556 and 1658, under the successive rules of Emperors Akbar, Shah Jahan and Jahangir.
