There is perhaps no better way to spend a honeymoon than view the world’s best known tribute to love: the Taj Mahal. While Agra itself might not offer anything else, you could go on a day trip to Delhi, Fatehpur Sikri and other nearby places of historical importance. The Oberoi Amarvilas is one of the best resorts in the city offering fantastic views of the monument. Did we mention already that Spa facility is also available here?
