Culture & History

Discover rich historical and cultural delights of the incredible city of Agra from The Oberoi Amarvilas. Within walking distance from the hotel is the inconceivable Taj Mahal, or as Rudyard Kipling described it as 'the embodiment of all things pure'. Illustrated as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, it was constructed by Shah Jahan as a memorial for his third wife, whose death in childbirth in 1631 left the Emperor so heartbroken, his hair is said to have turned grey overnight. The legacy of the Mughal Empire is ripe throughout the city, which has left the magnificent Agra Fort, and a hand full of remarkable tombs and mausoleums.

City Highlights

Attracting between two and four-million visitors each year, the Taj Mahal really needs no introduction. Situated just five minutes away from this glorious building, The Oberoi Amarvilas provides battery-operated resort buggies to and from the iconic site. This staggering monument - one of the Seven Wonders of the World - is open for night viewings when there is a full moon (and two days either side), which is a beautiful and extra-special experience. The best time to visit is between October and March, when the temperatures are a little more bearable. Please note the Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays.
