Hello,

In 3 days we are arriving in Agra by train from Varanasi. The train is supposed to arrive at 5.40 a.m. at Agra Cantt if on time. Er would like to visit the Tak Mahal, Red Fort ans Fathepur Sikri on that day. Afterwards we would like to continue to Jaipur either in the evening on the same day or in the early morning next day depending on your advises.
So we have a couple of questions we hope you can help us with:

1.) First of all we are wondering what would be the best itinerary!? We Think about two option.
Option A: First visit Taj Mahal in the early morning, then visit Red Fort, next go by Bus from Idagh Station to Fathepur Sikri. After visiting Fathepur Sikri continue in the evening from there by bus to Jaipur.
Option B: First Taj Mahal, Second by Bus to Fathepur Sikri and back, third visit Red Fort. Watch the Sunset from Red Fort or from the opposite site of the river looking in Taj. Continue to Jaipur either late evening by bus/train or mehr Early morning by train.

Option A sounds more sensful to me, but we heard it might be very nice to have a look on the Taj during Sunset. How do you think?

2.) How much visiting time should we count for each of those? 3 hours each is fine? Or maybe too much or not enough?

3.) Where can we drop our Backpack? At Taj?

Thanks die help.

Kind regards

I salute thee who are about to die. Of course, a quick run around the exterior of the Taj will do. Not that much to see inside. Then off to a meal at the fort. As long as you are young the fatigue is nothing. Then car & driver to FS to fight the touts. Can make a run through on that too. Don't get bogged down with food. You'll wonder why people go there. But hey, its done and checked off. Take a picture or two along the was to remember it..

Tac Mahal visit 2 hours (07- 09), transfer to Agra Fort half an hour (09.30 - 10.00), Agra Fort visit 2 hours (10.00 - 12.00), Proceed to Fetihpur Sikri 1 hour ( 12.00 - 13.00), Fatehpur Sikri visit 2 hours (13.00 - 15.00). Take the 19665 Jaipur train from Acchnera station scheduled departure is at 18.42.

Your world famous Marudhar Express never arrives Agra Fort on time. If it comes late for 1 or 2 hours, that itinerary is still doable.

You can leave your luggage is at Agra Fort Station Cloak Room.

Thank you for your advises. We will see how it goes and decide either we can squeeze in Fathepur Sikri. But we want to try.

So in your opinions there is no need to go back to Agra for Sunset or anything Else?
What would you suggest to get to Fathepur Sikri? Bus from Idagh Station? Or is there a better Option? How much would charge a driver?

Thanks die help.

Fatehpur Sikri require one day in itself. Unless you want to just touch and return. Can't you club that with your next day's plans? Agra has so much, taj, fort, sikandra, eitmaddulah etc etc. Cover them instead. One more thing, ASI monuments close at sunset

Just to give a feedback. For us it worked out very well visiting all there in One day. We felt like more than enough Time in every Place and ended up in a sleeper bus to Jaipur.
