Introduction

Agra is the city that possesses the most photographed building in Asia, the sublime Taj Mahal hardly needs an introduction here. It is quite simply the most perfect building ever created. This most famous Moghul monument was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal Chosen of the Palace and has been described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, for the Emperor was heartbroken when Mumtaz died in child birth in 1631 having produced him 14 children. Also in Agra are the Red Fort, Akbar’s Tomb and the Moghul gardens of Ram Barg.
