Is there a place to lock up our luggage in Agra while we tour the Taj Mahal on the way from Delhi to Varanasi? (eg at the Agra train station?) How much does this cost? Thanks, Kim

I was going to say that EVERY station in India has a "cloak room" where you can leave your bags but no doubt someone will have found a small station on a branch line which doesn't!

In general though every station has a luggage facility. You'll have to fill out some forms(with many carbon copies!) and they'll make some chalk squiggles on your bags...then you are free for the day. I can't remeber the cost but it's very cheap and I have never had any problms getting my stuff back. Just check what hours they close(usually just for an hour or so) 'cos you don't want to watch your train roll away without you and your bags.

By the way you are supposed to have a train ticket to leave your bags in the cloak room but I have manged it without when I have been taking a bus.It only took a nice smile!

Thanks!

Thank you Annie_T! I had thought that most stations probably have a luggage room but was wondering about the safety of leaving bags there. I'm glad you never had a problem. If someone out there did, I'd like to hear about it! Kim
