This white marble mausoleum, built on the banks of river Yamuna, epitomizes Shah Jahan´s love for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Designed by a local architect, Ustad Ahmad Lahori, the entire complex, with gardens, gateway structures, and mosque, was completed in 1643. More than three centuries later, the monument retains its romantic aura. Set like a jewel within gardens whose four-fold design echoes the Islamic idea of paradise, its millions of visitors marvel at the play of light on its marble dome which seems to turn from rose to pearl with the passage of the sun. There is much to see - the exquisite calligraphy, the lyrical floral motifs of the pietra dura decorations which form a mosaic of colour; and the fountains and canals of the gardens which reflect the monument in a series of ethereal images.

Fatehpur Sikri , Akbar´s City of Victory, lies on a hill top almost 40 kms from Agra. It has two different complexes- the royal enclosure of the palaces with the harem and official buildings; and the dargah of the Sufi saint, Salim Chisti with a mosque and gateway. To wander around the red sandstone courtyards of this World Heritage Site is to travel back in time to an Imperial splendour. The buildings at Fatehpur Sikri belong to a composite style of architecture with the predominating Islamic style cleverly blended with local Rajasthani and Gujarati styles, a melting pot of cultures. In its heyday, the city was a large and magnificent township; this is clearly visible even today, centuries after it was abandoned.

The fort, set atop rugged hills, rises above the waters of the Maotha Lake. Within its walls lies one of India´s best-preserved medieval citadels, a stunning complex of gardens, temples, pavilions and courtyards. The Amber Fort is, in roughly equal proportions, a pleasure-palace, a former centre of administration and a military stronghold -- all worth seeing.
