Agra was the capital of the Mogul Empire for nearly 150 years, starting from the end of the first quarter of the 16th century.

 

While the monuments in Agra are brilliantly gorgeous, the city is quite uninspiring. The very fact that Agra has not much to offer beyond the stunning monuments is a let down. Because of this reason, we recommend a Delhi to Agra by car day trip.

Delhi to Agra Route


View Larger Map

 

Delhi to Agra by road round trip is about 450 to 500 km. This takes about 8 to 9 hours driving time. Depending upon from which part of Delhi you are picked up and to which part of Delhi you choose to be dropped at.

 

While Agra has been made famous by Taj Mahal in recent history, it finds mention in the great Indian epic Mahabharata as Agraban. A 2nd century ancient map drawn by Ptolemy marks the location of Agra.

 

History tells us that Agra prior to the Mogul rule was an important regional centre for commerce and trade. In the eyes of most people Agra is nothing much beyond the Mogul rule. While this is true, that Agra flourished as never before, for nearly 200 years, under the Mogul emperors patronage, Agra had a life before.

 

Before the Moguls, Agra was ruled by the Turkish and Afghan rulers as well as the Hindu rulers. But all the famous buildings in Agra are you the moguls.

 

Agra city has been on a kind of decline ever since the Moguls moved their capital from Agra to Delhi. However, in matters of trade and commerce Agra has continued with its enterprising ability and even today it is an important commercial of North India.

 

 

Today Agra is well known for marble artworks, carpets, leather and shoes. It is also an important destination for education. Agra is also famous for a dry dessert called "Petha”. This is an Indian sweet, almost a sugar bomb. Firm, juicy, fragrant and soft simultaneously, this delicacy is produced and consumed in hundreds of kilograms everyday. Nowhere else in India is Petha may as well as it is in Agra.

 

Another delicacy for which Agra is famous for is the savoury snack called "Dal Moth”. Made of lentils as the main ingredient, it is delicately spiced and salty. 

 

We recommend that you sample tiny portions of both these delicacies. 

 

Your New Delhi to Agra trip is because of Taj Mahal. Question is what inspired Shah Jahan to spend so much of money in its construction?

 

Why was he so besotted with Mumtaz? Not much is discussed about the relationship between the emperor and his queen.

 

While Mumtaz Mahal was alive, Shah Jahan was not promiscuous. Promiscuity came later, after Mumtaz Mahal's death. Shah Jahan was intensely intimate, deeply affectionate and considered his wife to be his close confidante.

 

Shah Jahan was intensely intimate and caring towards his wife. He used to consider her as an almost equal partner is way of life. He used to seek her opinion on Royal and governance matters like his father Jahangir used to respect his wife Nur Jahan.

 

However, unlike Jehangir Shah Jahan was circumspect about his dependency on Mumtaz Mahal and the general public was unaware of it.

 

Shah Jahan even considered abdication of the throne after the death of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, but would not bring himself to do it as he considered kingship to be a sacred duty, which cannot be kicked away due to personal grief or trauma.

 

When you enter the Taj Mahal, you will spot the graves of the Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal on the ground floor. But these are faux graves. The real graves are located in the subterranean chamber of Taj Mahal.

 

The scholars are still grappling with the puzzle as to why these graves were built subterranean.

 

This grave of Mumtaz Mahal (born as Arjumand Bano Begum) in Taj Mahal is the second install. The first one was at Burhanpur, on the banks of the river Tapti.

 

At the time of her death, the Emperor Shah Jahan was engaged in a military campaign and Mumtaz Mahal was accompanying him. She died while giving birth to her 14th child. At that time she was buried there at Burhanpur, on river Tapti's bank to stop

 

Six months later, the corpse of Mumtaz Mahal was transported to Agra, the Mughal capitalunder the supervisory escort of her son, for it was deemed fitting that she'd be buried at the Imperial capital in full glory.
