Agra was considered and still considered as the Mughal Capital City and it is spread in an area of eighty-seven kilometers square. We know this city was established by the Mughals so the effect of Mughal architecture and culture is clearly seen all over Agra. Agra is a major tourist destination because of its many Mughal-era buildings. The city was first mentioned in the epic Mahabharata, where it was called Agrevaṇa (derived from Sanskrit language meaning "the border of the forest"). It was known then as Akbarabad during the Mughal period.

The time is less so if you are in Agra then forgets the other places but visit one and only famous monument that is the Tajmahal. The meaning of the name Tajmahal is "Crown of the Palace". It is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna River in the Indian city of Agra. The monument was built in 1643 by twenty thousand artisans under the guidance of a board of architects led by the court architect to the emperor, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. This was built by the great Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in the loving memory of his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal who dies while giving birth to his fourteenth child. There is a room in the monument where the body of Mumtaz Mahal was cremated and the monument was built above that. No one is allowed to enter that area but only can see from far off.
