Next, we go to Agra Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage site featuring its splendid structures and rich history. With a stately red appearance, this fort sits majestically on the bank of Yamuna River. First built in 1573, Agra Fort was the residence for many Mughal emperors and experienced the vicissitude of the Mughal Empire. Finishing the fort visit, you will have some free time to arrange the rest of the day. Your driver will be willing to give you a ride within the city limits.

Sitting on a small hill, Amber Fort used to be the capital of Jaipur. Its old façade tells the rises and falls of the dynasties while the beautiful decorations and carvings inside exhibit the wealth and architectural skills of the Mughal people.
Coming down from the grand fort, we proceed to Jal Mahal, an 18th-century palace located centrally on a peaceful lake. This five-storey palace now has four storeys under the water, which make it look like a floating palace. It is not open to public, so we can only take pictures in the distance. Then we go to Maharaja City Palace, a must-go destination for history buffs where lots of royal articles from centuries ago are on display. Our next destination is Jantar Mantar, an ancient observatory completed in 1734. The world’s biggest sundial and the precise instruments will make you marvel at the wisdom of the ancient people.
