Agra and Jaipur Extension
South of New Delhi and along the banks of the River Yamuna, the city of Agra displays a fine architectural heritage as home to a series of forts, tombs, and gardens designed by the Mughals throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. Home to the Taj Mahal, Agra is also known for its superb inlay work on marble and soapstone, in addition to its carpets, gold thread embroidery and leather shoes.
Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan, and the first planned city in India, was established in 1727 as the capital of Indian royalty. The tastes of the royal families are reflected in the temples, forts, and palaces that remain throughout the city.
