Agra, Monument - Shubham Varshney - October 16, 2018

Agra, the erstwhile capital of Mughals, is a great city with great monuments, markets, and wonderful green gardens. Located on the bank of River Yamuna, it is about 200km from the National Capital. Same day Agra tour by train will take you on a great journey to the Taj: a glorious monument which is the undying emblem of love.

Agra, the internationally well-known destination of India beckons you for an epoch travel experience. Taj Mahal is the pride of Agra and travelers come here from all over the world. Agra is a remarkable city located in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Its magnificent history can be best seen in its monuments which are simply mind-blowing. The same day Agra tour to this majestic city is like traveling back in time to step into the era of Nawabs and raja-maharajas. Agra city tour will give an exceptional travel experience to you.

On the other hand, this UP town has scored of other things too and sees to keep the travelers mesmerized. It is now a first-class commercial center of Utter Pradesh and pulls business travelers in hordes.

The Benefits of Same day Agra tour by train include:

Saving money

Train transportation gives a more economical mode of transport. You end up paying less than what you would pay for bus coaches on your Agra tour. Although train rides take longer than air travel, they make great sense for tourists seeking to cut costs. Additionally, you get to see the wonderful scenery in your way from Delhi, Jaipur or any other city to Agra along the way free. In addition, many of the leading train operators generally give discounts to seniors, children, students, and group travels.

Less hassle

Travelling Agra on a single day train tour is less hassle. The idea of reaching the airport 2 hours early, hopelessly waiting in long security lines can be very inconveniencing. Consequently, train travel offers a great alternative. Furthermore, train transport offers door-to-door convenience, since most of the train stations of Agra are situated in the heart of cities. Consequently, you do not have to hire a cab to drive you downtown.

There are several tourist places in Agra you can visit on the same day Agra tour by train:

Taj Mahal – It is the most glittering gem of India Tourism. You travel here by train from nearby cities in a single day. You can see the fascinating structure that is the finest example of the Mughal monument in the country.

Have you ever seen Taj Mahal in mist at the time of Sunrise?

Agra - Shubham Varshney - January 20, 2018

As I have written in my last post that “I will share my experience of Taj at Sunrise”, so keeping this in mind, like others here is my effort in glorifying the beauty of Taj Mahal. I am starting this with some questions just to make it more precise. Have you ever seen the boundless beauty of Taj? Have you ever felt the aroma of love which is shrouded at this monument? Have you seen the image of Taj given by the ponds over there in the early morning? Have you ever screamed, “where is the Taj” when fog covered the whole arena?. If yes, then you know very well that here what I am going to share and if no this post is only for you. I have done all the things, I felt the love, I saw the endless beauty and honestly, I just screamed off “where is the Taj”.

On 17th Jan, Wednesday, it was a 6’o clock and literally I was dreaming. Suddenly, my phone rang and it was a call from my brother-in-law, who was residing in the room adjacent to mine. He was the only one due to which I made it to Taj Mahal in the morning (A big thank for him). We both reached Taj at 7’o clock and bought tickets 40 for each as we are Indians. There were queues in order to get an entry from the main gate. I could able to see people who came from different parts of the world and they all were waiting to get an entry. It was clear and suddenly mist started covering the whole area and second by second it got more denser, the excitement crossed all its limits.

At 7:15 AM, we entered from the west gate of Taj Mahal, people could barely see anything because the dense fog was omnipresent. We entered in the arena where many fountains, small gardens and ponds were there, all were covered by mist. People were grinning at each other faces because we all weren’t able to see Taj yet. I asked my brother-in-law “where is the Taj” and he said, “It is having a unique stance and standing in the right front of us, but we cannot see it till the sunrise”. 7:30 was clicking on the watch and sun rises from the Far East, the moment was so mesmerizing that I can spend a couple of days in watching it only. As the sun turns out, the mist started disappearing and we people now could able to see the taj dome first and rest slowly slowly. It’s almost impossible to have that moment without feeling awestruck.

One of my good friends used to utter some beautiful lines and these are “Love is better of as virtual, you should feel it from far, rather not touch it because once you do, and the love has gone”. And the same I was feeling while standing in front of it. I felt handicapped and I don’t want to touch the marble which is used in building this artifact. Even I couldn’t step on the marble floor of it but very soon I am going to revisit this monument so that I can able make a way to appear in the list of those fortunate ones who had experienced the beautiful work done on it. Let’s not have a talk of future because no one knows what will happen.

This wonder of the world has a characteristic which is strong enough to appeal people to fall in love with this monument and people found spellbound to it. The characteristic is, as the daylight change, the marble reflects the same, means in the morning the sun used to be orange so Taj also appears orange. From my point of view that is the best time to experience the Taj Mahal. I was standing at the right front stage and watching the whole show, damn beautiful show in amazement. People were clicking pictures, some were giving their best poses and some were trying to copy the stance of Taj Mahal. Photographers were advising people to stand like this or in that way (like the one I had). I was clearly able to listen to some praiseworthy words which were uttered by every single person who was there with me.

Last but not the least, here is a tip, please don’t take books, diaries or any of the drawing material because all these things are not allowed to take in (because cops not allowed me to take my journal in and it was clearly written over there). Apart from this, we had a great time over there, we clicked many pictures and out of those best ones here are very few. If it is appealing than you could ever wish to explore with a marvelous piece of creation. There are lots of things about Agra which I have to share with you all. Till then stay happy, stay cool and keep the things neat and clean. Are you on board?.
