Yamuna Expressway for Fast and Convenient Access to Taj Mahal

Slashing the driving distance between India’s capital city New Delhi and the incredible palace of Agra, Taj Mahal, the Yamuna Expressway is sure to delight the time-pressed vacationers taking flights to India.

This newly launched highway is 165-kilometre (100-mile) long and has trimmed down the driving time between the two destinations from five hours to around two hours.

Taj Mahal has always been a major tourist destination that lures over three million travellers every year to book flights to the country. Overwhelming the world with its beautiful architecture and unbelievable charisma, the monument was built by Emperor Shah Jahan to enshrine the body of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The palace is also an important part of country’s highly famous Golden Triangle Circuit and thus remains on the travel itinerary of a big chunk of vacationers taking India bound flights.

The highway will prove to be highly rewarding for those who wish to get a glimpse of this beautiful monument that ranks among the Seven Wonders of the World with less time on hands.

First proclaimed in the year 2001, the Yamuna Expressway boasts design that is particularly aimed at bringing down the traffic congestion making the ride more comfortable for road users visiting Agra from the capital city, one of the major gateways for those booking flights to India.

Travellers can enjoy a smooth and comfortable ride on this country’s longest six-lane motorway by paying a toll tax of INR 320 (£4 approx.).
