1. what will be a good itinerary in sequence to visit these places - Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Sikandra, Tomb of Itmad-ud-daulah, Mehtab Bagh, Guru ka Tal & Fatehpur Sikri

2. Which is a good area to stay with family considering the itinerary.

3. Any Bazaar/Market for local shopping

4. Any famous food-joint to try local cuisine

Thank you !

Hello gsManik,

It is going to be too much to do in a day..considering an age of your kid..

You can start with Taj,followed by fort,Sikandra ,Guru ka taal and if time permits visit Baby Taj and Mehtabh Bagh otherwise not.

Fatehpur Sikri you can do on the way to Jaipur.

There are lots of hotels of all catogeries in Agra...most of the hotels are on Fatehabad road which is a main street to Taj....can you give an idea how much you want to spend on hotel in Agra?

Sadar Bazzar is good for shopping.

For Vegetarian Non veg food you can go to Pinch of Spice or there are few Restaurant is sadar bazaar as well.

Hello gsmanik,

What time are you arriving in Agra? I would try and do as much as you can on Monday, Agra Fort, Guru ka taal, Tomb of Itmad-ud-daulah (Baby Taj) and then at sunset, visit Methab Bagh, for a wonderful view of the Taj Mahal

Then I would spend the night at a hotel. Try and stay at a hotel in the area of the Taj Mahal. What is your budget? If you mention you budget it would be easier to give a recommendation for you.

Then I would recommend you go and see the Taj Mahal at sunrise. It is beautiful at that time, less crowds and heat. Then you can come back to your hotel for breakfast and leave for Jaipur. Stop and see Fatehpur Sikri and Abanheri Stepwell on the way.

I tried out Bon BBQ last time I was in Agra and thought it was very tasty, esp the appetizers!

Hi.

It is good that you have two days in Agra .

Day 1. Taj.mahal Agra fort sikamdra and Guru ka taal .

Day 2. Fatehpur sikri on the way of Jaipur ..

Local food you can visit Sadar bazar.

Taj mahal is closed on every Friday.

I hope you like this suggestion.

Sat Sri Akal

Please do keep in mind that you have a 3 year old child and you would need to take a break from sightseeing after 3-4 hrs

yes, its true that breaks are needed for kid and ourself when roaming with a small kid :)

What are the opening timings of Taj Mahal in morning if planning to visit their at sunrise ?

I'll plan to leave Delhi by 6AM and reach agra by 9-10 AM.

I would be staying in a budget hotel ranging upto 2.5K with the option of breakfast included. Can i find such hotels around Taj Mahal Road ?any options ?

Try the Hotel Atulyaa Taj hotel, It is beautiful with a pool and very close to the Taj Mahal. You can see it from the roof top patio!

The Taj opens at sunrise, so arrive early to buy your ticket and stand in security line around 1/2 hour to 45 minute before. Depends on sunrise time. Check at hotel.

When you get to Delhi at 9 or 10 am you can go to Agra Fort, Guru ka taal, Tomb of Itmad-ud-daulah (Baby Taj) and then at sunset, visit Methab Bagh, for a wonderful view of the Taj Mahal.

I would recommend you go and see the Taj Mahal at sunrise the *next* morning. It is beautiful at that time, less crowds and heat. Then you can come back to your hotel for breakfast and leave for Jaipur. Stop and see Fatehpur Sikri and Abanheri Stepwell on the way.

Have fun!
