To start this post I have to take you all a year back. About a year and a few months ago I had a visit to my sister’s home, Agra. Where my brother-in-law and she lives in a rental apartment. There was somewhere in my mind that this could be a better place for me, either to do a preparation for CAT or for any companies aptitude test. I am very fond of reading books, especially on mythology. As I was an average student, so I could not make it to CAT but some of the MNCs called me, as I passed their expectation level (I am mentioning all the above stuff just because I want that you people should know about me). And by the time, I was smitten with this city of amidst romance. And this city led me closer to my dream.
As we all know that Agra is the home of The Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, this city gets thousands of visitors every day. The flocking of tourists on roads can be easily seen on the weekends because Agra is a picture-perfect place for a picnic to the people who live nearby it. This city works as a backbone to Uttar Pradesh’s financial system and an antidote to a wanderer who has a lust of exploring fine art. People from various part of the world can be seen in this city and they all visit this city just to quench their souls. One can do various mind-brewing things in this city, as it has ample amount of monuments and beautiful places. But below are the things which are truly experienced by me.
Top things to do in Agra:
I have taken plenty of hours in deciding what should be shared in this column from innumerable things which can inspire a seeker for having a visit to this city of the crown. And after a great brainstorming, here are the top results. Honestly, this city urged me or plead me to do these things and I would like to do these again and again, whenever I will get the chances.
- Watching the teardrop(Taj Mahal) at the Sunrise:-
It is said that this marvelous monument changes its color as the daylight changes and it is really a fact. Although, till now I haven’t visited Taj Mahal at the Sunrise, I assure you that my next post will be on it. I would like to share that moment with you all and I will give you an imaginary tour of it. I am discussing it because this is the thing which I wanted to include it in my “checked” list, from the very right moment when I first heard about it. Unluckily, I couldn’t make it. I am considering a phrase” Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet”.
- Live show at Kalakrati Cultural and Convention centre:-
Very near to Taj Mahal’s east gate, there is a convention centre named as Kalakrati. On every evening, a live show is used to perform by the various amazing artist on how and on what conditions, this monument was built. One can book a ticket from various online sites or by direct visiting on official site. Really, this show is worth watching. There is also a fact which is residing in this centre and that is, a replica of Taj Mahal. This convention centre is having one of the finest replicas of this splendid monument.
- Have a taste of mouth-watering Mughlai Cuisines:-
Agra city had the privilege of being ruled by some great emperors of Mughal dynasty and the history says that Mughals were fond of eating tasty food. This city had many amazing chefs and from them, some inherited this property and serving their best to the foodies. One can easily find a restaurant which can provide best Mughlai dish but I recommend Navratan Korma at Pinch of spice. When this dish will be served with aromatic spices, I bet you, you will not be able to control your sense.
These are mine top things which I have done in this city till now and a lot more left to experience. My future post will be on some mesmerizing views of Taj Mahal and on other various hidden gems of this city. Are you on board?
