Agra is a city in the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India, located on the River Yamuna. It is the 19th most-populated city in India. It is best known as the location of the Taj Mahal.

It was established sometime around 1000 BC, then known as "Agrevana." It later became a powerful fort, and flourished a golden age of prosperity as the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1556 - 1658.

Today, Agra is known for its Mughal history, as the location of the Taj Mahal, its historic fort, crowded city streets, and signature cuisine.

Agra in People's Lives

Olivia Culpo: I traveled here in September of 2013, for a photoshoot at the Taj Mahal. Though I was excited to see the historic site, I did not feel right about doing a promotional, sexy photoshoot there, and told photographers that I didn't want to do it. However, they pushed, and so I was dressed in a sari and posed in front of the tomb, and was told to wear stiletto heels. Before the shoot could go much farther, we were told to leave, and that we were violating national laws. There was some discussion of putting me on trial, and that I would face up to 2 years of jail time. Though none of this happened, thankfully, I was sad to have had such a terrible experience at the Taj Mahal.
