We want to visit the place because of its historical value. We believe this trip will give practical exposure to the subject. Secondly, we have learnt Agra Fort was one of the most important forts during the Mughal Period and it is also designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We have to read about the Mughal Period as a part of our syllabus thus a first-hand experience will give a better understanding of the chapter.
We shall be highly obliged if you arrange the trip to Agra Fort according to Institution’s time and convenience.

Give special attention to the opening and the closing phrase and also be careful about the use of punctuation and indentation of the paragraphs. The format of the formal letter is the soul of the entire letter. I hope the session has provided you with a variety of useful information which you can use while drafting a letter to the principal.
