you and take you directly to the hotel. Refresh yourself and get
prepared to visit some of the most interesting places in Agra.
The Agra Fort was initiated by Akbar in the 16th century, though additions and modifications in the fort continued till the time of Shah Jahan.Despite the fact that not all palaces inside are open for public viewing, yet there is still much to see like the Diwan- e- Aam, Diwan-e-khas, Musamman Burj, Jehangir's palace and Jama Masjid.

eternal symbol of love. It is by now a familiar (still fascinating)
story of how the great Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan built the beautiful
white marble mausoleum for his beloved wife, Mumtaj Mahal after she
died. The Taj glows like a precious jewel with every ray of rising sun
falling on it. It is one of the most lovely memory that you will carry
back home after your trip, so, have a good look at this eighth wonder
of the world.
Return to your hotel and have your breakfast. Thereafter leave for Jaipur which takes a total of 6 hours to reach. However, you will not go straight to Jaipur as there are two main attractions that lie on the way. Leaving them out will be highly inappropriate, so, visit Fatehpur Sikri, a city that was laid down by Emperor Akbar. It served as the capital city for Akbar, however, the water shortage problem forced the emperor to abandon this city. Today, this city is a classic example of the Mughal architecture.
Also, visit the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, the best place in India to view the birds, both resident and migratory. The Siberian Cranes that migrate to this sanctuary every year in winters are a special attraction. If you get a chance to see them, do not just turn away to see other birds, because they are really a hot favourite of the sanctuary.
Proceed to Jaipur and after reaching there, transfer to your hotel immediately. Have a refreshing bath and ward off any slight symptom of weariness that you have started to feel. Stay overnight in Jaipur.
Day 03 : Jaipur - Explore The Pink City of India

There is also a Kali Mata Temple as well as Shitla Mata Temple within the fort premises.
Later return to Jaipur and explore the City Palace complex and the museum enclosed within its area. The Hawa Mahal is an intrinsic part of the City palace complex but commands its individuality. It was built to enable the ladies of the royal household to have a peek into the outer world without going out in public. The Jantar Mantar is yet another attraction of the pink city of Jaipur quietly observing the movement of the planets in the space.
