Day 2:


Today is going to be a long day! After an early morning breakfast head to the Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah, another brilliant display of Mughal architecture. Next, visit Guru ka Tal, a holy pilgrimage destination for the Sikh community. If you love to shop and want to take back artifacts from Agra, you must visit Raja ki Mandi and Kinari Bazaar.

There are multitude of small eateries and lavish restaurants near these markets, so you can have lunch at any place of your choice. Later in the evening, head to Mehtab Garden for a beautiful view of Taj Mahal. Sit there for a while and just take in the beautiful scenery.
