#2 of 179 in Things to do in Agra
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.

  • We visited the Agra Fort the day after we saw the Taj Mahal. It was great arriving in the early morning when the Fort just opened because it was empty and we could enjoy the architecture and take grea...  more »
  • Excellent place to visit. Our guide was keen to get through the tour which made everything a bit rushed, but we could have gone back through by ourselves if we'd wanted to. It's really an attraction not to be missed while in Agra. The work that went into building this fort is beyond comprehension...all before electricity and power tools. And to think we only saw 30% of the place, with the military occupying the rest! Highly recommend a visit to this fort for all travellers.
  • Historic place. Though built during the Mughal era, this place still feels like built a few decades ago. This place has a lot of historic events attached with it. Hiring an authorized guide would make the visit more knowledgeable and fun. Very good place for photography lovers. Would take half a day to enjoy the whole fort, although a portion of the fort is occupied by Indian Army and is not accessible to commoners. Professional photographers roam in the area with instant photos , hence no worry if you forgot your camera.
  • Wonderful architecture. An awesome tourist spot. Nice maintenance. Great ambience. The place is mostly crowded during holidays. One of the must-visit places in Agra. The scriptures here speaks mughal dynasty's history. Great place for the history students to visit. Water and rest rooms facilities are available.
  • A place to remember! I will never forget this particular place because I celebrated my birthday outta here. Had a great family time. Here goes a great picture for you guys! ❤
  • To be frank it need to be visited on a winter day when much less sun is present. We went as a family on a really hot day. Not much regrets but still Delhi heat can be punishing. Great place with a great chance for photography. Only thing I would want to improve is the maintenance is not up to the mark.

Where to stay in Agra

Agra offers a broad selection of budget and mid-range hotels, many within easy striking distance of the Taj Mahal, the main reason to visit the city. The area just south of Taj offers arguably the least expensive accommodations, while the streets splitting off from Fatehabad Road boast a high concentration of mid-range hotels. Keep in mind that free Wi-Fi remains unavailable even in most of Agra's nicest hotels--expect additional (and possibly steep) fees for limited Internet access.
