Agra sightseeing – Fatehpur Sikri - Agra
Early in the morning, at the time of sunrise, you will be taken to Taj Mahal. It is highly recommended to visit & admire Taj Mahal during dawn hours when the white marble tomb looks the prettiest. The Taj Mahal is often called 'poetry in stone'. If so, the mausoleum is a poem of love in white Makrana marble. The mausoleum was built by the Mughal ruler Shah Jahan for his favorite wife, Mumtaj Mahal. Designed by the Persian architect Ustad Isa, it took 22 years to complete. Please note: Taj Mahal is closed on Friday.
After visiting Taj Mahal, return to hotel to refresh, check out and proceed for Jaipur. On the way to Pink City of Rajasthan, visit
Fatehpur Sikri - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city of red sandstone was built by Akbar as its capital / secretariat cum palatial residence in the late 16th century. It is a real fairytale city, still in excellent condition. It is not difficult to imagine what court life must have been in the days of its greatness.
Later, continue towards Jaipur, literally meaning "The City of Victory". The original name was "Sawai Jaipur",
named after the young prince who commissioned it - the Maharaja Jai Singh II - a warrior, astronomer and politician who reigned between 1699 and
1743. Jaipur today is also known as the Pink City. In the evening witness the ‘aarti’ceremony (pooja) at Govind Dev Ji Temple. Later in the evening,
check in at Jaipur hotel to spend evening in leisure and have overnight stay.
