AGRA TO KHAJURAHO- any news on train lines?

by Bada-Ran

Dear all,

I am travelling this summer to India, and we were considering Khajuraho. I have read somewhere about a new train service from Delhi, stopping in Agra, that stops just by KHAJURAHO, when it seems there used to be no station.

Does anybody know something raleted to this new station or train service from Agra to Khajuraho?

otherwise, is it easy to reach from Agra?

Thanks!

Delhi to Agra- and the same train the next day to Jhansi. Jhansi is the closest station to Khajuraho.

They've been promosing that train station in Khajuraho for at least 5 years! In any case, don't miss Khajuraho. There is bus service or you can hire a private car from Jhansi. The trip should be around 4 hours or so. Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Agra

monuments in Taj premises

by bharat_tanwar

My Favorite is in Agra ....Of course The Taj Mahal..........the white wonder is only attraction there. i can't forget my 6 hours which i spend with Taj ...........No words to explain it...........one has to go & get the taste by himself.

Nice Sutures !!!

by kenmerk

While waiting for the train to pull in at Agra Train Station, suddenly,,,, I was assaulted by the local shoe repair man. He notices that one of the straps on my 10 year old sandals was about to pull loose. (these guys mill around on the platform staring at everyones feet, looking for footwear that may not be quite up to snuff....)

Tried as I may, I could not shake loose of this guy, I tried the moving pick, the bump and run, feigned seizures, even acting in a manner that is not consistent will civil behavior (trust me, a big leap for me....), still he stuck to his guns that he would not let this offending piece of footware go unrepaired....

Originally he wanted 100 Rs for the job ($2.30 USD), but the price kept dropping with every evasive manuever that I made, finally settling at 10 Rs. ($0.23 USD)

Out of options, and tired from the exercise, I finally gave in and let the guy fix my shoe.... and I have to say that this was some of the finest stitching Ive seen ... (I can truthfully say that Ive had surgeons working on me that couldnt sew that straight....)

Anyway, if you ever take the train to Agra, be on the lookout for this guy: 4 feet tall, maybe 80 pounds, always staring down at peoples feet..... Cant miss him....

Agra

by yumiyun

City of Agra was established in 1475 and reached its zenith during the reign of Akbar, Jehangir and Shah Jahan. During the time of Akbar, Agra became the centre of arts and culture.

Monuments of Agra are built Munghal style with abandance of high quality craftsmanship. Even today, you can witness craftsman in Agra reminding the legacy of past empire. Inlaid marbles and the way they are crafted.

Passing by the Red Fort

by l_joo

Passing by the Red Fort is something you won't miss, its in the middle of city unless you skip the whole thing deliberately avoid seeing it, or perhaps you use a piece of cloth wrap up your eyes, hahaha.

Pietra Dura

by TomorrowsAngel

At the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, if you look closely, you can see the detail of the semi-precious stones inlaid into the marble in various patterns.
The process of which is very time consuming and highly skilled. Each petal of the flower or part of a leaf or bud is shaped from semi-precious stones on handgrinders. Then marble is dug out by simple iron chisels by using finger's pressure only to the size, shape & thickness of the shaped stones. Then the same shaped pieces are fixed into the grooves with the help of a special glue.
