Agra And The Taj Mahal – Where to stay

People mainly go to Agra to experience the beautiful Taj Maahal, built by Moghul emperor Shah Jahan in 1653 for his late wife. It is a stunningly beautiful Moghul construction, with influences from Persian, Turkish, Islamic and Indian styles. Agra forms part of what is called the 'golden triangle', along with Delhi and Jaipur.

The top hotel in Agra, with fantastic views of the Taj Mahal from each guest room and many of the public areas, is the Oberoi Amarvilas.   This deluxe hotel offers beautiful gardens, two excellent restaurants, a swimming pool, fitness centre and spa, together with the usual Oberoi impeccable standards of service.


The Trident is by no means a top luxury hotel but we feel it offers great value, comfort and service - and it is only 1.5 km from the Taj Mahal.  It is definitely worth considering while staying in Agra if you don’t want to splash out at the Oberoi Amarvilas.
