The Taj Mahal Is Just One Part of Agra. With The Mughal Heritage Walk, Discover This Former Capital Of India's True Legacy. The history of India during the Mughal era is deeply ingrained in Agra, the metropolis of the Mughals. Agra's thick as stone fort walls contain many mysteries, making for an intriguing tale it observant travelers. The Mughal Heritage Walk is the most distinctive approach to fully unraveling the secrets and stories of the long-awaited past of the city. There are many untold stories—some forgotten, others preserved—in the villages, forts, architectural wonders, and by lanes of Agra. These paid Walks organized as community businesses highlight the lesser-known history and culture of Mughal Agra. This one-kilometer walk through the bustling streets of the village offers visitors an opportunity to view the socio-urban culture and way of life of the people of Agra and to see the city's historical features in its well-known architecture. This tour of the village of Kachchpura provides a window into Mughal history while showcasing the locals' way of life and gracious hospitality. In addition to providing visitors with a rustic perspective of the Taj Mahal, the town of Kachchipura also offers clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced lodging for those genuinely interested in experiencing local culture in a nudist and rural setting. Three main attractions make up the Mughal Heritage Walk, which begins in the village of Kachchpura.

Gyarah Sidi, or the eleven steps are: The Gyarah Sidi, carved from a single block of stone, is located on the banks of the River Yamuna and offers a magnificent view of the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort. Humayun, who took the throne after Babur's death and loved astronomy, had the Jantar Mantar built so that he could observe the stars and learn about the constellations. There are currently very few fragments of the Jantar Mantar, also known as Gyarah Sidi. The Gyarah Sidi in the village of Kachchpura is where the Mughal Heritage Walk begins. The Humayun Mosque: The tourists are led into the town to see the Humayun Mosque after seeing the Gyarah Sidi. Being surrounded by Mughal-related sandstone graves makes it a very unusual type of mosque. The Moonlight Garden (Mehtab Bagh): Originally designed to observe the Taj Mahal in the peaceful moonlight when the Taj reflects its image on the river and the Yamuna reflects on the Taj's construction. Mehtab Bagh, also known as the moonlight garden, is a beautiful architectural marvel with an incredibly unique irrigation system. Mehtab means moon, and Bagh means garden. You must take advantage of the chance to see the Taj from the back and document it in your photographs while you are here.
