There are a lot of definitive list of the must-see world wonders and destinations. These are destinations not to be missed and are as gorgeous on the exterior as they are rich in culture for a truly once in a lifetime trip.
The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra, built between 1631 and 1648 by order of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife, ‘Mumtaz’. The Taj Mahal is the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage

After breakfast visit Taj Mahal: Agra is the city of the Taj Mahal, perhaps the most photographed monument in the world. However, no matter how many pictures you have seen or no matter how high your expectations are, the Taj never lets you down – the unparalleled glory and beauty of the building surpasses beyond all human imaginations. At sun rise we visit the Taj Mahal to witness this spectacular monument built for love. Besides perfect symmetry in every aspect of its construction, the inlay work of semi-precious stones into marble in Pietra dura style is absolutely remarkable. (Taj Mahal Closed on Friday’s) and Agra Fort – On the shores of River Yamuna, to the northwest of the Taj Mahal, Emperor Akbar started a majestic fort, which gained Jehangir and Shah Jahan as its future benefactors who added rose-red sandstone and marble buildings to it respectively. Within 2.5- km-long and 20 feet high fortified walls, the premises of the fort houses many visionary palaces, such as the Jahangir Palace and the Khas Mahal, audience halls, such as the Diwan-i-Khas; and two very beautiful mosques. Afternoon visit Fatehpur Sikri: A fascinating ghost town, lies a little beyond Agra the deserted Red sandstone city that was built by Emperor Akbar as his capital. It was a veritable fairy tale city and its ruins are still in a pristine condition. It is not hard to imagine what the court life must have been like in the days of its grandeur.
Set like a jewel in a courtyard of pink sandstone is the marble tomb of the Saint Salim Chisti, enclosed by delicately carved marble screens and visits Buland Darwaza, Panch Mahal, The Jami Mosque, Birbals Palace, Sunhera Makan, Palace of Jodha Bai, Kahan-i-khas, Diwan -i-am. Come back to Hotel and an overnight stay.
