    About Agra

    Its around 220 kms (137 miles) and takes 3 hours by car/4 hours by bus. You can make weekend trip to Agra, but remember to book your hotel from Delhi itself just to make sure that you need not to hunt for one after reaching there. Once you reach Agra you can hire a taxi for Rs. 600-700 which will show you Agra fort, Taj Mahal and Sadar bazaar (that all what you have in Agra) after this if you like you may go to Fatehpur Sikri to see Buland Darwaza and Fatehpur Sikri Fort.

    Consider checking Agra Travel
