The Taj Mahal looks stunning in moonlight. Waters of the holy Yamuna River glisten under the white light. The marbled monument seems to whisper the saga of romance between Emperor Shahjahan and his queen Mumtaz Mahal. Just sit quietly at one of the benches of the perfectly done garden and you will feel the love.
If you wish to make your tour different…to add oodles of luxury and some royal charisma to your trip, come to Agra through a luxury train. One of the most preferred choices is the Maharajas’ Express. This one has received a series of awards and recognitions, both national and international.
When the maharaja comes to the Taj Mahal
It makes sense to visit this symbol of love built by a renowned king like a king or queen yourselves. You may be the king or the queen in your life, no doubt; but there is something unique about letting others, precisely strangers, treating you like “your majesty.”
This happens easily on board the Maharaja train.
The train’s staff is trained to treat each passenger like a royal guest, who deserves king or queen like treatment. They leave no stone unturned to pamper you and make your trip one of the most comfortable and fulfilling ones of your life.
The Maharajas train covers Tajmahal and many other places of historical significance of Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra. Its tour itineraries – Gems of India and Treasures of India – are exclusively planned for letting tourists visit the Golden Triangle of North India. This includes Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. Apart from this, the train’s other North Indian tour itineraries, too, include a visit to Agra.
Besides the Taj Mahal, tourists get a chance to explore the Agra Fort, which was built by Emperor Akbar, and the ruined city of Fatehpur City, which was also built by Emperor Akbar and often called Ghost City. You can visit other places of interest too, shop at local markets, and have fun.
It is not wrong to say that the Maharaja train contributes to promoting Agra tourism through its intelligently planned tours.
Other hot destinations of Uttar Pradesh
Varanasi and Lucknow are two other cities that draw tourists like honeybees to hives. These cities are included in the tour itineraries of the Maharajas’ Express.
Varanasi is regarded as the holiest city of India. It is also the oldest inhabited city of the world. Do you know the city witnesses burning of pyres round the clock? It is also the city with several holy “ghats” that spring to life every evening with sounds of temple bells, lightings, aartis, chanting, and other such spiritual and Godly stuff. The most spectacular and famous of all aartis is the Ganga aarti at Dashashwamedh Ghat, which is the main ghat of Varanasi. Honorable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi had attended this aarti in 2015.
Lucknow is known for its “nawabi” culture and “tehzeeb” (manners and etiquettes). The city reminds us of the ancient royal era of India, especially the Mughal era.
It is time to book a space in the Maharajas Express to visit Tajmahal and other culturally rich and interesting places of North India.
