Agra is a city in the state of Uttar Pradesh and located 206 kilometers south of Delhi, about five to six hours bus/train ride. Being home of the majestic Taj Mahal, it is one of the major tourist destinations in India.


Aside from the great mausoleum, Agra has other UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Agra Fort and Fatehpūr Sikrī.

  • I spent 2,525 Rupees about 1,800  Pesos (38 USD). I could have spent a little less if I stayed in a cheaper hotel, had budget meals and didn’t rush to go to my next stop.
