While on The Rajputana Splendour tour, you will realize that
Agra has a lot more to it than just the Taj Mahal. The little
township of Sikandra houses quite a few tourist attractions
The tomb of Akbar features prominently during travel to Sikandra.
Started by the Mughal emperor himself, the monument was completed
by his son Jehangir. Mughal architecture's finesse and grandeur
is clearly etched in these monuments.
Built in red sandstone, the monument is fringed by beautiful
lush gardens. The Buland Darwaza is its entrance. Huge
mosaic patterns adorn the gateway.
Travel to Sikandra will take you to a visit to the four minarets
on the Buland Darwaza. Built in red sandstone, these have
intricate work of white marble. The Char Baghs (four gardens)
around the tomb make it look all the more fascinating. The
same kinds of gardens are present in Taj Mahal as well.
Sikandra travel equips you about knowledge of the calligraphy
used during that era. The tomb has an open terrace enclosed
within jail screens.
The portico leading to the tomb of Akbar in the basement
is decorated with spectacular paintings. Vibrant floral designs
keep this place alive even after these many centuries.
During your Sikandra tour, professional guides will take
you down memory lane, through a journey into the life and
times of Akbar.
Sikandra is easily accessible by road from Agra. The town
has a few budget hotels. The Rajputana Splendour tour will
ensure booking in a decent hotel. The third day of your tour
will surely be mesmerizing.
Travel to Sikandra will be reminiscent of your tour of Agra
since the architecture is more or less similar.
