Agra, the city has been known since the times of the renowned epic Mahabharata. It was then known as Agraban, the sister city of Mathura. Agra, as we know of today, was established in 15th century by Badal Singh but was soon taken over by the Lodhi kings. It was only after Sikander Lodhi was defeated by the Mughal emperor Babur that started generations of Mughal period in the country. It was during the Mughal period that the city grew in its cultural and commercial influence.

Agra which is renowned for Taj Mahal has over the years impressed travelers with its magnanimous and grandeur. Bill Clinton, the former US president after his visit to this wonder remarked “The world is divided into two parts – people who have seen Taj Mahal and those who have not “.
