With massive sandstone walls, Agra Fort holds a place on the World Heritage List and represents one of the finest examples of Mughal architecture in the world. Visit the imposing fortress and walled city, begun in 1565, and marvel at its brick walls, complete with crenellations and defensive towers. You can wander the extensive complex and see a number of meeting halls, mosques, and other buildings used during the rule of Shah Jahan in the 17th century, as well as expansive green spaces and interior courtyards. Don't miss the fort's eastern walls, from which you can enjoy a sweeping view of the nearby Taj Mahal.

  • This Islamic-Hindu architecture for was originally built under orders of Mughal Emperor Akbar over the 1565 to 1573 period. Many beautiful buildings within the outer walls.

  • Awesome place to visit with family. Ancient Indian architecture at its peak. Too much history comes to life if you have a wonderful guide with you. A must see place if you are obsessed with Mogul history. Restrooms and water dispensers may not be available inside, so please go prepared accordingly.
  • One of the great and huge historic monument. It would be better if you take a guide because there are many historical buildings inside this fort, which he will be able to explain better. At least you need 2 hours to visit this fort. Morning time is the best for visit here. If you are a bird lover you will get to see so many parrots. Entry charges : 35/-
