If it were me, I'd spend the two days in Agra. I believe you will see more of the "real" India in Agra, although I'll have to admit, it is not a very attractive city. Be sure to see the "Baby Taj" (It-Ma-Udallah Tomb) in Agra.

There is much to see in Delhi as well and if you are a serious shopper, you should definitely spend 2 days there.

For an idea of how we spent our time, see my trip report:

If that's all the time you have then maybe the air fare is a waste of money.

Thanks. I'm working in Chennai and only have a weekend so that's why the stay is so short.

Agra I'd say - but plan it well, all your transfers and all so you minimize time wasted.
