Day 1

Just back from a solo tour, all tanned! & the tan keeps reminding me of the magnificence of the tour the knowledge i gathered and people i met

On the very first day I started my journey with a cup of tea on the roof of my hotel enjoying the glittering Taj

.....and then journey begins,I entered taj mahal through west gate and immediately scenic beauty of taj was witnessed . after completing the much needed photo shoot I proceeded towards agra fort which was few meters from taj mahal(walking distance) .on your way to agra fort you will sport peacock and beautifully decorated road and pavements .

Make sure you are not carrying any food articles or luggage because you have to leave that behind before entering into taj or even in agra fort and they are charging twenty rupees for cloak room.

after leaving agra fort I was very hungry and couldnt even imagine about proceeding to fatehpur which is 37 km away from agra fort.so I had a very fast lunch with very famous puri which I found very tasty even at cheapest price few locals guided me to go to near bijli ghar for puri and daal (power house) .Thanks to their really quick and helpful guide.Then I took auto towards idgah bus stand to catch bus for fatehpur.Note dont hire auto alone go with sawaris(passengers) on sharing basis which is safe and cheaper .They will take only 10 rupees for idgah. Bus for fatehpur is available all the time .It takes almost one hour to reach fatehpur city.Take 3 hours to roam the place properly and then enjoy puri and sandesh from local shop near buland darwaja.my first day of trip ends here.

I get to know from locals that haryana bus towards faridabad goes fast and fare is also cheap ,rupees 165 /- only .so it took almost 3 and a half hours to faridabad .I left the bus near bata chowk metro stattion and took metro towards central secretariat and from there I changed metro for new delhi metro station and checked in to hotel .
