Officially known as the Tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daulah, this mausoleum was commissioned by Nur Jahan, the wife of Jahangir, for her father, Mirza Ghiyas Beg. Due to its design and structure, it is often regarded as a draft of the Taj Mahal. Many of Nur Jahan's other relatives are also buried in the mausoleum.

Go on a 'Petha' trail

It won't be an exaggeration to say that Petha (bite-sized pieces of sweetened ash gourd) is one of the most famous sweets of Agra. You can try more than 50 varieties of Petha in the city, including those flavoured with grape, saffron, pineapple, strawberry, and betel. One of the most popular shops in the city for Pethas is the Panchhi Petha, which has many outlets in the city.

Take a boat ride on the river Yamuna

Shop at the Kinari Bazar
