HOW TO BOOK:

Short trips are meant to inspire you and give you an idea of what is possible. They can be extended, combined and changed to match your preferences and time frame. Have you found the route for you? Or are you still at sea with no compass? Get in touch and we’ll get to work.

ESSENCE
Though the seat of the Mughal Empire for only a decade, Fatehpur Sikri bears the imprint of the wisdom and aesthetics of the legendary emperor, Akbar. An unmatched portal into a grand, noble, generous lifestyle lost to the centuries.

 

The Taj Mahal will take your breath away. Try and catch the waxing moon reflect on the world’s most tender, heartbreaking, beautiful tribute to a lover lost. Read Mumtaz Mahal’s cenotaph “HELP US OH LORD TO BEAR WHAT WE CANNOT BEAR” and try not to connect it to her death while giving birth to her fourteenth child.

Agra itself is best seen in flashes and glimpses. A dusty, bustling, sometimes overwhelming Indian modernity that TLC will navigate you through.

 

DURATION: 5 days.
