Discovering Oriental Agra

Early morning when the city wakes up to the holy azaans from the mosques, mingling with the chiming of the bells in the temples, children scampering to the schools, the halwai getting set for offering the morning breakfast of mouth watering delicacies like the Jalebis and the Kachories indeed present a different picture of the city.

Discovering Oriental Agra program is an endeavour to connect the tourists with the city.
