Religions in Agra

Introduction

Religions in Agra Agra is a city on the banks of Yamuna River. It is a major tourist destination because of its many great Mughal-era monuments, buildings, fort, palaces, tombs etc. Among them Taj Mahal, Red Fort and Fatehpur Sikri are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is one of the most populous city in Uttar Pradesh state and the 24th most populous city in India. Here we can find citizens of different religions in which majority is of Hindu and Muslims. During Mughal era, large number of Hindus were forcefully converted in Muslims due to which their population increased in this area. In addition to this, we can find peoples of other religions like Sikh, Jains, Buddhist, Christian etc. Despite of different religions, Agra is a good example of communal harmony. We can find holy worship places of many religions. We may find some groupism in old Agra city but in new Agra city, we will find people of different religions living is same society, without any discrimination, with communal harmony. In today's busy life, people have not time to think of other religions but they are busy in earning their livelihood. Now city is not divided on the basis of religion but on the basis of wealth. We can find societies of low earning people, middle class and rich class. Here religion is not the criteria of division but wealth is the new criteria. City can also be seen divided into residential areas, commercial zones, army area etc.
