Agra

Our scrapbook notes about Agra

Agra is a city in the Northern state of Uttar Pradesh in India. It is pretty close to New Dehli therefore makes it very accessible to get to. What really attracts backpackers to this tourist hub is the famous Taj Mahal, but also the UNESCO sites of Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. Agra is a very touristy area due to the Taj Mahal, but many other sites and spectacles can be witnessed here. The airport is about 12km from the city centre, but rail is probably the easiest way to get to this backpacker hotspot.
