Where would you recommend staying in India that is close to the Taj Mahal? What other points of interest are there near the Taj Mahal? Any other advise on travel to inda would be great!
The only other worthy sight in Agra is the Agra Fort which is excellent and where the builder of the Taj spent his last years in prison. Not a long way away is Fatephur Sikri, this extraordinary palace area which was only lived in for 11 years before being abandoned for lack of water. The cost must have been enormous. almost 10 years ago
Other than Taj Mahal there is not a lot to see in Agra. We visited Akbars Tomb set in lovely grounds with many deer and monkeys wandering around the visitors. I believe Fatephur Sikri is worthwhile as well but did not get time too see it. over 9 years ago
