About Agra

Agra is a city on the banks of the river Yamuna, 363 kilometres west of the state capital, Lucknow and 200 kilometres south of the national capital New Delhi. The city is mentioned in the epic Mahabharata, where it was called Agrevaṇa ('the border of the forest'). Legend ascribes the founding of the city to Raja Badal Singh, a Sikarwar Rajput king (c. 1475), whose fort Badalgarh, stood on or near the site of the present Agra fort. Agra city is like a medieval one with narrow lanes and colourful shops. It is a major tourist destination because of its many splendid Mughal era buildings.
