Day 03 Delhi - Agra -4hrs approx
Breakfast
Drive from Delhi to Agra en route visiting Sikandra. Sikandra, a few kilometres short of Agra on the main Delhi-Agra highway (National Highway 2), is supposedly named for a pre-Mughal ruler of Delhi called Sikandar Lodhi. Sikandar Lodhi had ambitions of extending his reign south of Delhi, and had a citadel in Agra-and perhaps a garden at this spot. In the early years of the 17th century, the third of the Mughal emperors, Akbar, chose Sikandra to be the site of his mausoleum. He renamed it Bihishtabad (`Abode of Paradise`), and commissioned its design and construction, though after Akbar`s death in 1605, the building was completed under the aegis of his son and successor, Jahangir.
On arrival in Agra check in at hotel.
The earliest reference to Agra is in the epic The Mahabharat. Ptolemy, Alexander the Great`s geographer also called it Agra. It was, however, in the medieval period that Agra earned prominence as a capital city under the Mughals. Its many wonderful monuments and the Taj Mahal, the greatest of them all, have given it a unique position as a major tourist center.

Day 04 Agra - Jaipur en route Fatehpur Sikri
Breakfast
Drive to Fatehpur Sikri.
This magnificent fortified ghost city was the capital of the Mughal emperor Akbar between 1571 and 1585. The downfall of this once magnificent capital of the Mughals started with the rise of the Jats when Emperor Aurangazeb left this place never to return again. The credit for preserving the ancient monuments situated here goes to Lord Curzon. Since then , these protected monuments and the environs of the city have been well maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India. The city is rectangular in shape with nine huge gates - Delhi Darwaza, Lal Darwaza, Agra Gate, Suraj and Chandra Darwaza, Tehra Gate and Ajmeri Darwaza.
