"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."

With our compliments
Enriched with a rich historical and cultural backdrop, the city of Agra dates back several centuries. It finds mention in the Mahabharata (3rd century BC), where it was 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. Agra city reached its zenith between 1556 and 1658, under the successive rules of Emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan, who later built the iconic Taj Mahal in memory of his greatest love: Mumtaz Mahal.
