Walking Through the Forgotten City of Old Agra

Join me on a tour of the historic Kala Mahal area as I tell the story of the past, present and future of this once important but now forgotten  capital city of the Mughals—Agra. The walk will take you through the officer street (Haakiman street), the Shahi Jama Masjid, while you also get a chance to interact with locals, and talk about major art and political figures who belong to the city. The walk will end with a traditional local breakfast the walk leader's ancestral home.

This guided tour is free.
