If you are travelling to Agra to see Taj Mahal and your train reaches at night at AGC. Don't hesitate to book the Dormitory or Room at the station thinking that its not well maintained. I recently travelled to Agra and had booked the AC dormitory at AGC for the night. It was well maintained, clean and tidy. The beds were also really comfortable. Besides, what more do you want in just 150 bucks (approx.), its worth the money.
Can you tell me if the rooms have Western type toilets? I am planning a short trip where I plan to stay about 24 hours in Agra. Thinking of booking a retiring room but all rooms including Deluxe and Ordinary are shown to have Indian toilets only. That is a big problem for my parents. Any help in this regard would be great.
The AC dormitory has western toilets. Can't say about deluxe/ordinary rooms. For that, you may rely on the info given at IRCTC tourism.
Transportation details from AGC
Distance - 12km
Auto Cheges- 120 to 250 depend on availibility
Sharing Auto- Direct autos not available but Cant to Bijalighar charge 10 then Bijlighar to Tajmahal 5
Very much useful and desirable for all other stations.
Tourists need such info as many are traveling on Budget tour.
i think you r talking about isbt tp nagar?? from where anyone can get buses for delhi, mathura, gurgaon, noida/delhi(via y exprswy), and for almost all the cities in uttar pradesh...
AGC to Taj Mahal is about 6km not 12km.
and isbt tp nagar is only 9 kms from agc
Agra Fort Railway Staion
Distance 5 km
Water Works Bus Stop
Distance km 9 km
and for water works you can get direct city buses going to tundla
That distance is via mall road while sharing autos runs via chhipitola.
yess that is TP nagar but board of that bus station clearly says Agra Fort bus station.
where is board??? i have never seen... there is one separate workshop adjacent to cng station whose board says agra fort workshop, which is transffered from agra fort to tp nagar.
Board is on main building of bus station,
I will took a snapshot and will post here
This has to be the most detailed STATION TIP blog for any city till date..good work.
I would upgrade it to excellent when it contains additional info about:
1. Passenger ameneties at AGC, AF,RKM
2. MOST IMPORTANT .. some local famous eateries,snack shops, nearby AGC / in the city :P

I think OLA Autos are cheaper than normal ones....For visiting Taj Mahal
Yes not only Taj Mahal but actually prepaid counter rates are costlier for almost all destinations.
Can you shed any light on the availability of vehicles or cabs and the approximate fares for traveling from Agra Cantt Station to Tundla Railway station?
Thanks in anticipation
Pre paid taxis are also dacoits and prostitute
Please stay away from them
LIVE TIPS FROM RAIL DHABA RESTO, AGRA CANTT RAILWAY STATION
Food outlets available:
1.KFC 2.Idli.com 3.Curry Kitchen 4.Chaat Wala 5.Panchhi Petha
*I opted for KFC chicken, Hot and Crispy with coke. Food was piping hot and delicious.
Veg rice bowl nahi deta kya ye outlet?
Nope, Veg mein koi bhi options nahi the 😑 not even fries!
You can find KFC and Rail Dhaba on Pf no.1. Raildhaba have variety of food, from Chaat to South Indian food, veg and non veg both option. Raildhaba have chaatwala, idli.com,curry kitchen and kfc.JANTA KHANA is also available.As it was early morning i just tried coffee and Idli. Pricing is Ok, but taste is the thing they need to work on. Idli tasted like it was stale and made from rice powder mix. Sambhar and Coconut chutney tasted flat. Menu is attached.You can make payment using paytm,Bhim Upi and by scanning QR code. PARCEL facility is also available.Will review more food options later on.
Nice pics with description 👍
How many stations have KFC on Platform? I know about AGC only
No idea... Old delhi par mcd h..
Very Expensive it seems Idli costs 60 Rupees & Coffee 28 without Taxes and this is not Rawa Idli i think its Rice Powder idli. South side foods are never tastes like south in any part of the country often.
That what i mentioned. It tasted like it is made from rice powder mix..
But coffee was worth 28 bucks
Yes. Normal Local Shops nearby are selling at the same or higher rate... KFC Menu price is Incl of all taxes. Coffe is good as maddy told. Worth for the money spent... Tea at Rs 5 is also availble..
