Famous all over the world, the erstwhile capital of India, Agra records a large number of footfalls in terms of tourists and travelers from all over the world for Taj Mahal which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
The city of Agra offers a peek into the Mughal heritage and rich archeological history of the country during the 16th and 17th century. Well connected to all the major cities in the country, Agra boasts of four railway stations.
While these four stations are broad gauge railway lines connecting Agra to various major cities in the country, the Agra city railway station is a gauge railway line with very few any trains making their stops here.
Agra Cantt Railway Station
With the station code of AGC, Agra Cantt is the main railway station in the city. With close proximity to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, this station lies in the south-west direction of these two famous tourist attractions.
A prepaid taxi stand outside the station charges at reasonable rate to take you to any hotel in the city whereas for a cheaper mode of conveyance, you may walk for a little while to catch an auto-rickshaw. If you are a foreigner, it’s highly unlikely that such auto-rickshaws will speak in English.
Agra Fort Station
With the station code AF, this station is situated near the Agra Fort but is not frequented by many train stoppages unlike the Agra Cantt.
Raja Ki Mandi Agra
With the station code RKM; this station is relatively small in size. Situated in the heart of the city, this station shares the stoppages of the trains that frequent the Agra Cantt Station.
Idgah Railway Station in Agra
This station is the first stop when you travel from Jaipur into the city of Agra. On the outskirts, this station is not as useful as the others in its league and is mostly used as a passing intersection for trains that travel into the city to other bigger stations.
