Agra Travel guide
Agra : Michelin's recommendations
Along with Delhi and Lahore (now part of Pakistan), Agra was one of the three finest cities of the Mughal empire, and as such its architectural splendour is not limited to that of the Taj Mahal, as here you’ll find some of the most beautiful buildings from the 17C. Palaces, mosques and tombs are all part of this mosaic inspired by Allah’s paradise. Sadly, the filthy centre of the city, which has been disfigured by hideous architecture, is besieged by horrendous traffic that has had a disfiguring effect on these architectural marvels.
