One Day Itinerary for Agra
While Taj Mahal is the main reason you will want to visit Agra, there are several excellent sites that you should also visit if you can, including two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. It is difficult to complete all these places in one day, but perhaps can just about be done. The itinerary assumes you arrived in Delhi the previous evening and have the whole day at your disposal.
A two day itinerary is a lot better if you want to explore Agra’s brilliant monuments properly. The alternative is to pick one of Fatehpur Sikri and Agra Fort to visit in addition to the Taj.
Both Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri are not much fun to visit in the afternoon, when the sun bakes the stone floors. In the Taj and in the Jama Masjid section of Fatehpur Sikri, you will need to be barefoot – not much fun in the sun
