Traversing one of the most popular routes, Experience Agra & Around: On the Road takes one on a road trip to some of India’s most fascinating destinations. From the temple towns of Mathura and Vrindavan, wildlife sanctuaries at Bharatpur and Sariska, majestic palaces and forts at Gwalior and Orchha to the enchanting city of Jaipur, a mixed bag is on offer. While the Taj Mahal at Agra is the eternal favourite, the unassuming Chambal river, the deserted Ater Fort and the intriguing Bhangarh Fort hold special charm. All drives are from Agra, the most convenient nodal point to head in any direction. Follow the detailed driving instructions once you have chosen your place of interest. The book offers a first-hand account of What to See, Where to Stay and Eat while having the leisure to choose one’s own pace, take in the sights, catch a local festival or unwind at a roadside eatery.
