  1. Taj Mahal: The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658) to house the tomb of his favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal; it also houses the tomb of Shah Jahan himself. The tomb is the centrepiece of a 17-hectare (42-acre) complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by a crenellated wall. Construction of the mausoleum was essentially completed in 1643 but work continued on other phases of the project for another 10 years.
  2. Agra Fort: Agra Fort is a historical fort in the city of Agra in India. It was the main residence of the Mughal emperors for nearly a century, from 1526 to 1643. The fort is also known as Lal Qila, or Red Fort, because of its mainly red sandstone construction. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  3. Fatehpur Sikri: Fatehpur Sikri is a fortified city in the Agra District of Uttar Pradesh, India. It was founded by the Mughal emperor Akbar in 1571, as the intended capital of his empire.

It was built in the early 17th century by Nur Jahan, the wife of Mughal emperor Jahangir, for her father Mirza Ghiyas Beg, who was the Chief Minister of Akbar. The tomb is often referred to as the “Baby Taj” because of its similarities to the Taj Mahal.
  5. Mehtab Bagh: Mehtab Bagh is a charbagh garden complex in Agra, India, on the opposite side of the Yamuna river from the Taj Mahal.

  6. Jama Masjid: Jama Masjid is a 17th-century mosque in Agra, India. It was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan between 1638 and 1656. The mosque is the largest in India and is considered one of the most important Muslim religious sites in the country.
