Must see · World heritage site · Castle · Architectural Building
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.

  • Fort was well planned for tourist. Neat clean and with good facilities. We got a guide who really explained us in details about the history of the fort. At the same time he helped us to click good photos at the main points of the fort. Really had a very good experience. Majestic! Most popular attraction inside are the squirrels. Security do not allow food inside but you can secretly smuggle 2-3 peanuts and feed them, they just come running to you if you have food for them. Very cute, children will love it! hat an amazing place, the fort, lawns, architecture, stone carved artwork on pillars and gates, everything is pure delight. If are a history buff (who loves to know about history and culture this place transcends you into a different era) this place is an absolute treat. All you have to do is to feel it.
