Same Day Delhi Agra Tour
Indian Classical poet Tagore describes Taj Mahal as a ‘tear on the face of eternity’ with a reason. A glimpse of this town gives one the true feel of Moghul Architecture with a combination of Ottoman, Turkish, Islamic, Persian and Indian elements. This led to the recognition of Taj Mahal as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983. On the other hand, the white domed marbled mausoleum is a dominant structure attracting many visitors to this Indian town.
