Our place is Surprisingly close to The Taj Mahal and situated in lush green surroundings . You’ll love our place because of the location, the ambiance, the neighborhood, the outdoor space, the people & the culture. We are hardly 2 Minutes walk far from Shilpgram Tajmahal Parking, where Tourists buy Tickets for Tajmahal and get Golf buggies to reach eastern Gate of Tajmahal.. our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families, and big groups and also with single lady travelers.

The space

This tastefully done Homestay is a creation of me and my wife Beena Talan with her great sense for aesthetics, choice of right colors and space creation has given shape to a gem of a Homestay , it has taken us over two years of search for artwork,which is displayed all over from the walls to little corners to door handles
We have tried to relive the Heritage left by great Mughals in design & execution.

All guestrooms in the house are Spacious, with proper light, air and sight . Our Large Terrace can be utilized for your morning yoga practice, sun bathing & enjoying sun downer.

With unlimited exposure to the foreign tourists with a discernible eye ,I learnt a lot and created a piece of art ,representing India has become a passion for me and this passion has inspired me to open a homestay as a platform to express indian Hospitality

My wife has been a primary school Teacher, is now very much enthusiastic to manage this Homestay
We both can communicate in English and German and answer most of questions on indian culture.

What a pleasant stay! Everyone, hosts and their staff, is very helpful, welcoming and warm. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. It's literally a five minute walk to the ticket office for the Taj-- couldn't be more central. Loved chatting with both hosts and picking up tips on getting to our next location. Great rooftop deck to relax on at night.

Suraj's homestay is just a couple of minutes walk from the Taj Mahal east gate ticket office. This was incredibly convenient as this is the must see destination of Agra. The house is beautifully decorated with art and colourful walls. The room was well set out with modern quiet AC. There were plenty of peaceful common spaces for us to relax and unwind after a long day. Suraj and his wife were always on hand to help us out, nothing was to difficult for them. The breakfast is generous and tasty and the staff who prepare and serve it are polite and eager to help. We would be more than happy to stay here again and would recommend this to anyone looking to visit Agra.

We only stayed at Suraj's place one night, but really enjoyed our time here. The decor was amazing, and our room was clean, spacious and had great air con. Suraj organised a taxi to pick us up at the station upon arrival, so that was greatly appreciated. The food was amazing, and we had breakfast, lunch and dinner here, although lunch appears to be dinner reheated. Suraj and his wife were not around, but the staff did everything we could ask to make our stay comfortable. The only issue we had is we had asked to have a taxi take us to Jaipur which ended up not showing up, but the staff quickly helped us book another so everything worked out in the end. If you are coming to Agra, this is the best place to stay. It is within walking distance to the Taj Mahal and the people here are so accommodating.

Suraj's accommodation was perfect for our short stay. It was very easy communication, great breakfast and dinners home cooked, extremely clean and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. A short walk to the Taj. Will definitely recommend to anyone travelling to Agra. 10/10

This place is beautiful. Suraj and his lovely wife are so welcoming. The house is perfect location for an easy visit to the Taj Mahal and the balcony is perfect for a few cold beers at sundown. The food (dinner and breakfast) was some of the best we've had during our stay in India. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and highly recommend it.

One of the most beautifully decorated accommodations I've seen in India! The pictures do not do this place justice. Suraj is a very knowledgable host, and his beautiful wife Beena is a woman of elegance and great taste. If you don't want to bother with the hassle of finding a restaurant in Agra, the family is happy to provide a delicious home-cooked meal for a small fee. The workers are also friendly and efficient, taking care of small details to ensure your stay is comfortable. Would've loved to stay here longer. Will definitely be back if we return to Agra.

excellent upkeep and a happy, lively and safe place. Meals are home cooked, made from good quality ingredients to give you a taste of what Indians eat at home everyday. Good value for your money.
