Things to Do in Agra

  • Chhatri of Raja Jaswant Singh

    The Chhatri of Raja Jaswant Singh, also known as Jaswant ki Chhatri is a cenotaph in the shape of an arched pillared canopy. Built between 1644 and 1658, it is believed to be the only monument built by a Hindu in Agra during the Mughal empire. The Chhatri of Raja Jaswant Singh was dedicated to Rani Hada, a princess of Bundi in Rajasthan, who was married to Raja Amar Singh Rathore. After Raja Amar Singh Rathore was killed in a battle at the Agra Fort in 1644, his body was handed over to his widow, who committed sati thereafter. Raja Amar Singh’s younger brother, Jaswant Singh Rathore built this chhatri in the Rani’s memory and honour. It is an extraordinary amalgamation of Hindu and Mughal architectural styles and is famous for its jali or stone mesh work. The stone work of the Chhatri of Raja Jaswant Singh is similar to the one in Agra Fort and is also referred to as Agra Jali.

  • Taj Mahotsav

    The Taj Mahotsav is an annual 10-day festival held at Shilpgram in Agra. With the majestic Taj Mahal as a backdrop, it is a great cultural event to attend. Every year, the Taj Mahotsav has a different theme with a message to the world. This festival is a celebration of the rich arts, crafts and culture of India.

    At the Taj Mahotsav, artisans from all over the country come together and display their works. This includes bamboo work from the North East, stone carvings from Tamil Nadu, wood carvings from Saharanpur, chikankari work from Lucknow and pottery from Khurja, among others. Apart from this, there are also folk and classical music and dance performances by talented artists.

    Food forms another important aspect of the Taj Mahotsav and this is the perfect opportunity to treat your taste buds to the varied flavours of delicious Indian cuisine. The festival includes a Fun Fair, a favourite among children and teenagers, where they can enjoy exciting games and joy rides

    In 2014 the Taj Mahotsav will be held from February 19-28.
