Destinations and Excursions
Agra, a city on the bank of River Yamuna, finds mention in the epic Mahabharatha as Agravan. Ptolemy, the famous 2nd centaury geographer, marked it Agra on the world map . It is generally accepted that Sultan Sikandar Lodi, the ruler of Delhi Sultanate founded it in the year 1504 but the golden age of the city began with Mughals after 1526. It was then known as Akbarabad and remained the Capital of the Mughal empire under Emperor Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan. Agra’s significance as a political centre ended with the transfer of the capital to Delhi by Shah Jahan, but its architectural wealth has secured it a place on the International map.
