Agra is home to the magnificent Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The city is just a few hours’ drive from Delhi. Part of India’s rich history since 1000 B.C, the city was first referred to as ‘Agra’ by the Greek philosopher, Ptolemy in 200 A.D. Agra first rose to prominence as the capital of the Mughal Empire in the 16th Century. Many of the city’s acclaimed heritage sites date back to this five star era of India’s history, including the resplendent Taj Mahal. Carrying the best of the Mughal Empire’s artistic heritage into the present day, the streets of Agra are dotted with ancient buildings existing in happy harmony with luxury hotels, shops and modern day houses. From its fine marble inlay artwork to its delightful sweet shops, the city offers much to cherish. Near the Taj Mahal, Trident, Agra is one of the best hotels in the city. Beautifully landscaped gardens and water fountains welcome you to this charming leisure hotel. Built in local red stone, reminiscent of the Mughal era, the hotel features 135 tastefully appointed rooms and suites, which overlook the central courtyard and gardens.
