Akbar Tomb & Mughal Architecture
Akbar tomb another Mughal architecture masterpiece built in 16th century in Sikandra which is in outskirts of Agra.You have the grave of the great Mughal King Akbar in the basement and replica of it is also made next to the main mausoleum.In the morning you have less people and its a little far away from the city so its better to visit this place early morning.I had a great time in the city and hope you also do.Cheers.
