DESTINATION HIGHLIGHTS

Taj Mahal

Described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, this stunning mausoleum has become the de facto tourist emblem of India. It was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, whose death in childbirth in 1631 left the Emperor so heartbroken that his hair is said to have turned grey overnight.

Distance from the Hotel: 600 meters
The hotel offers a complimentary pick up and drop service in a golf cart.

Itmad-Ud-Daulah

This was built by Empress Noorjahan (wife of Emperor Jehangir) between 1622-1628 A.D. in memory of her father, Mirza Ghiyas Beg, whose title was Itmad-Ud-Daulah, meaning “Reliance of The State”. Itmad-Ud-Daulah is the first building made of marble and with inlay work in India. It is considered to be the inspiration for the Taj Mahal and often referred to as “Baby Taj”.

Akbar's Mausoleum at Sikandra

The sandstone and marble tomb of Akbar, the greatest of the Mughal emperors, is situated in the middle of a peaceful garden where deer graze, at Sikandra, 4 kilometres northwest of Agra. Akbar started its construction himself, blending Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Christian motifs and styles, much like the syncretic religious philosophy he developed called Din-E-illahi.
