Day 3: New Delhi - Agra - Drive to Agra and Heritage village walk

After breakfast check out from hotel and travel to Agra. Agra in terms of ambiance is still associated with its Mughal period. The Mughals besides being great rulers were also great builders and they preserved their best architectural wonders for Agra & its neighbourhood. It has many wonderful monuments and the Taj Mahal, the greatest of them all, is a masterpiece of Mughal architecture at its best. The massive but elegant Agra Fort, the delicate artistry of Itimad-ud-daulah’s tomb, the magnificent Taj and Akbar’s deserted capital, Fatehpur Sikri, are each unique and outstanding. On arrival check in to hotel.

​Late afternoon go for Mughal Heritage Kachhpura Village walk with high tea. A narrow bridle path through agriculture fields near Mehtab Bagh takes you into the ancient village of Kachhpura and Humayun’s Mosque. The walk through Kachhpura starts with explaining the paintings (sanji art) on the walls done by community girls under the youth program. Humayun’s Mosque is another monument that is situated inside the village. This is a strange peculiar kind of mosque ever built by Mughals. It has one deep narrow, great central ricer or compartment entered by a high arch and domed in the center with one recess in its weak wall. At each side of this central compartment the building is lower and broken up into the smaller chambers.

After regular meetings with government authorities, they have now been renovated as well. The central courtyard of the village is a major attraction of Kuchhpura.
