Day 2Agra – Fatehpur Sikri – Jaipur

Early morning wake-up call and sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal. (timings would vary as per season). Sunrise is by far the best time to visit the Taj Mahal. Not just because the early morning light turns the dome of the temple a soft, golden colour, but because this is the time when there are the least amount of tourists. Described by Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore as “a teardrop on the face of eternity”, the Taj Mahal is undoubtedly the zenith of Mughal architecture.
