love built of white marble. Agra city is not only a reputed tourist destination of

Uttar Pradesh Travel
"I had been to other countries - in Europe, Asia and the Middle
East - but none of them had provided even half as much variety, or
so much to see and experience and remember, as this one State in
northern India. You can travel from one end of Australia to the
other, but everywhere on that vast continent you will find that
people dress in the same way, eat the same kind of food, listen to
the same music. This colourless uniformity is apparent in many
other countries of the world, both East and West. But Uttar Pradesh
is a world in itself." - Ruskin Bond.
Uttar Pradesh is a place of gods and goddesses, a land which has
an ancient and glorious history. Uttar Pradesh - the land of Rama,
Krishna, Buddha, Mahavir and Ashoka; the land where the great
Mughals had engraved numerous landmarks of history is one of the
most sought after destination for tourists in India. Uttar Pradesh
is a land dotted with countless shrines and pilgrimage which hold
a special significance in the lives of the Indian people.
