The Streets of Agra

20 Dec

Agra, capital of India under the Mughals and home to three designated World Heritage Sites, from magnificient Taj Mahal and massive Red Fort to beautiful abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri. Along with Delhi and Jaipur, Agra is the third apex of the famous “Golden Triangle”. But this amazing city situated on the banks of holy river Yamuna is not only a tourist attraction. It is also a huge urban organism without real “centre” but with disorienting maze of streets and bazaar districts that stretches across well over twenty square kilometers. It is also 20th most polluted city in India with a population of nearly 1,7 million people. Let me take you for a walk around the streets of Agra.
