Then, visit Jantar Mantar, an open-air array of astronomical instruments. The next day, view the Palace of the Winds, built so women of the royal household could observe street life without being seen. Proceed to explore the beautiful Mughal style Amber Fort. This red sandstone and marble palace was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013.

Day 9 - Agra

Travel to the “ghost city” of Fatehpur Sikri. Continue to Agra and your luxury hotel, catching your first glimpse of the breathtaking Taj Mahal from your window. Pay your first visit to the masterpiece the next morning, when the rising sun lends a warm pink tint to its marble face. Continue to the Agra Fort. Return to the Taj Mahal in the late afternoon, as the setting sun bathes it in a soft orange glow.
