    After taking my CEO for a day trip to Keoladeo National Park (https://www.bcmtouring.com/forums/threads/keoladeo-national-park-bharatpur.71445/) it was now turn being the HOD, to take my team for a day trip. we went to Arga and combined it with Fatehpur Sikri. We started by 6.00 am after picking up my three team members. we reached Agra by 8.30 am after taking Yamuna Expressway. We visited the tomb of Aitamad-ud-daula first. thereafter we went straight to Taj Mahal. but before entering the tomb, we had a hearty breakfast at the restaurant situated in the Taj Mahal premises. Being a Sunday, there was a huge crows gathered to visit the tomb. It took us 15 minutes to enter the tomb. We did the usual stuff, clicking Taj Mahal from all direction and corners. It was noon time and Sun was beating down hard at us. we left Taj Mahal for Fatehpur Sikri. We visited the Bulund Darwaza, paid homage at the Salim Chisti dargah and thereafter visited the fort and all its mahal. It was unbearably hot and we decided to leave. But before that we had a late lunch. After lunch, we again took the Yamuna expressway back to Delhi.
