Insider's View

A great alternative to the Oberoi, just without the view of the Taj Mahal.

It is worth bearing in mind that there are no lifts so the hotel isn't great for disabled access

Ask for a drink on the Taj Mahal Terrace, a watch the sun go down over the Taj Mahal.

Enjoy a meal at the hotel’s popular restaurant Peshawri which offers traditional Mughal food. The daal is really delicious and well worth trying.

Opt for an upgrade to the Mughal Chambers, instead of Mughal Rooms, as it’s a little more spacious and includes many more amenities.

After an amazing visit to the Taj Mahal, round off this ethereal and tranquil experience with an Ayurveda spa treatment

Charlotte Winter (Staff)

The ITC Mughal is a big, luxurious hotel in Agra and is in close proximity to the Taj Mahal. The whole hotel follows a contemporary-Mughal design and has 35 acres of gardens. The ITC Mughal is a great choice for families as they offer lots of different activities including tennis, badminton and croquet, as well as a kids center. Theres a wide selection of rooms and suites, although some of the bedrooms do feel a little dated.

The ITC Mughal is of an international standard with spacious rooms and a fantastic spa with a pomegranate theme. After the Oberoi, it is probably the next most luxurious option in Agra.

The ITC Mughal is, as the name suggests, inspired by the Mughal Empire. The opulence of the time is clearly reflected in the design of the hotel, and visible the second you walk into the lobby. The Mughal provides a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and is definitely one of the top choices for an often quick stop over in Agra.

Experiences

  • Agra - Mughal Heritage Walk (Kachpura)

    Visit the small village of Kachpura, a rural settlement, with a stunning backdrop of the Taj Mahal.

    The youth from the community, who have been trained up as tour guides, take you through the village allowing you to real get a feel of village life.

  • Agra - Sunrise at the Taj Mahal

    The Taj Mahal at sunrise is often on many people's ultimate wish lists and it never disappoints. Seeing the sun rise over this amazing monument makes you sit back in awe as Taj's color slowly changes as the sun shimmers against it.

    Situated 37 km (23 miles) south west of Agra, the ‘lost city’ of Fatehpur Sikri is the abandoned capital of the great Mughal emperor Akbar.
