There is more to my city than meets the eye !!!

A famous community for management students, aspirants and alumni clubbed with a travel blog-cum-journal portal for a contest - Something in my city that's ignored and not realized.

Now, What's ignored in Agra??? The world knows Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri; even the mental asylum !!!

But pouring in bit of thought, I realized there's more to that in my city. Here go the 200 words, that framed my reply -

____________________________________________________________________________________
Agra, one of the most ancient cities of India is today famous worldwide for two great monuments – One is Taj Mahal, a symbol of Love and another – A mental asylum. This makes Agra the biggest proof to mankind that love cannot exist without madness. Where Love prevails, madness simply pours in…

A city with a rich ancestry, Agra has many well-known as well as yet-to-be-discovered buildings. Among the famous ones (apart from the forenamed ones) are Agra Fort, the Fort and Dargah at Fatehpur-Sikri and Akbar's Tomb at Sikandra.

However, among those that are ignored by many tourists, one is the tomb of Etmad-ud-Daula, Father-in-law to Jahangir. It is indeed the BAAP of Taj Mahal, in many senses. The carvings here have laid foundation to the famous 'Lucknow's Chikan' embroidery.

Another one in the line is Dayalbagh's Radha-Soami Temple. It has a history of its own and is said to be cursed that its construction will never end. It's dedicated to the Gurus of Radha-Soami clan and construction is going on since generations.

Lastly we have the Pohiya Ghat – on the peaceful banks of Yamuna, the same bank where Lord Krishna once had his leelas with the Gopis… Exotic, eh?
