India Tours - Agra

Posted on Mon, 09/16/2013 - 11:14 by easytours
 

Because it is the city of the incomparable Taj Mahal, Agra's many other historical and architectural monuments get far less attention than they deserve. There are magnificent palaces, forts, mausoleums, as well as various other similar structures. Spectacular historical reminders flourish all over this area, and you can choose how many of them you want to visit.

Explore as many of these monuments as you like, at a pace you choose. We offer you the opportunity to start and end each day (at Agra) at the Taj Mahal (one entrance included). It's creators intended the incredible beauty to be accentuated by the rays of the sun at sunrise and sunset. Entrance fees (to the monument) are many times higher at these times, thereby significantly reducing the number of local tourists you'll be sharing the amazing spectacle with. Our Tours include all monument entrance fees for guests.

Visit four hundred and forty year old massive sandstone Agra Fort and it's many monuments; Jehangir Mahal, Diwan-i-Am, Diwan-i-Khas, among others. Near there, tour the Itmad-Ud-Daulah and Agra's Jama Masjid. Just outside Agra, Fatehpur Sikri is a remarkably well preserved ghost city from the same time in history. All our scheduled visits to Agra include a tour of the architectural marvels of this deserted monument.

New Tiger cub spotted in the Ranthambore National Park

Posted on Thu, 07/25/2013 - 11:38 by easytours
 

June has been a good month for tiger conservationists in India who celebrated the appearance of a new tiger cub at the Ranthambore National Park.

The tiger cub has been spotted in the area of the Sawai Madhopur district, taking the total number of cubs resident to the Ranthambore National Park to twenty-three.

In line with the practice of keeping track of any growth in the tiger population at the Ranthambore National Park, authorities were quick to track the cub along with its mother.

Explaining the facts behind this new and exciting discovery at the Ranthambore National Park, the Park’s Field Director, Rahul Kumar Bhatnagar said, "The cub of the tigress named T-17 was spotted with her in the Samili area of the park. It is nearly one month old".

Conservationists claim that the birth of each new cub is an important milestone in the effort of rehabilitating the population of tigers in the wild which have been decimated to near extinction over the past few centuries.

Besides the 23 cubs in the park, there are also 26 full grown adult tigers that live in the Ranthambore National Park.
