On the outskirts west of Agra City, Fatehpur Sikri (The City of Victory) was a complex of mosques and courts central to the Mughal Empire. Though Agra Fort was home to the crown, Fatehpur Sikri became its capital for ten years. Emperor Akbar built the city in 1571. The land was favored even by Akbar’s father and grandfather—Humayun and Babur, respectively—away from the bustle of newly taken Agra. The city incorporated Persian, Arabic, and Hindu influences as it was built, reflecting Emperor Akbar’s own character as leader. Visitors can see this for themselves, gazing at the pristine halls, palaces, and yards built in red sandstone.

When the Himalayan black bears and sloth bears—both endangered species—were rescued from a life of harsh labor, the local villages were stripped of livelihood. The Kalandar -- or Qalandar tribe, as they are known -- have since then turned away from their bear-rearing practices and now anchor their income in taking tourists through the humble rural life of Agra. The life is simple, but the people are generous with what little they have. Homes are sparse earth and thatched structures. Some of their animal-performing traditions remain, however, and the men occasionally perform with a monkey when they’re not going through a routine of magic tricks. Agra is a city rooted deeply in its heritage and a welcoming glimpse into India’s rich history. A vibrant landscape exists outside of the Taj Mahal’s manicured gardens, if tourists are only open enough to explore.
