Hands down the most impressive fort. Must more impressive than the Red Fort in Delhi or any of the many English castles I have visited.
Better than the Taj...Magestic Fortress you need 2 hours for the visit, a really enjoyable experience.
A massive fort that could take along time to do it justice. however hot climate probably means it is too much. The highlight has to be a wonderful distant view of Taj Mahal on the river.
Absolutely stunning fortification from an engineering & defense perspective. Unfortunately a lot of it is currently (31/1/2016) under construction and whatnot , so you can only access about 20% legally. Don't bother bribing guards here, but the odd gate is open nonetheless. Always fun to explore. The fella that ordered this to be built quite likes secret passages, so there are many side passages and corridors to explore.
A Fort Well Built And You Can Observe A Lot Of Hardwork And Masterpiece Of Old Indian Artists ... You Can See The Taj Mahal From This Place .
many important parts are locked by this govt. and tou ll just keep on roaming and roaming and roaming ... very very very big place... peaceful and lush area... very clean and tidy... CHECK OUT THE SOUND .... some special thing by mughals. any pindrop in this area can be heard easily ! that was how king used to announce things!

I went to Agra Fort after I went to Taj Mahal, this was a very rich experience, you get to see the Taj Mahal from this place. This place has a high value historically talking and you can get to see some architecture that was used in Taj Mahal also in here. If you visit Agra don't miss this place.
The site itself is amazing, much like many of the historic places in India, but the experience can be marred by children and adults relentlessly peddling their goods. And I mean relentless, whether you say no, no-thank you, ignore and keep walking or whatever. They will keep trying and follow you. But I get it. They have to make a living and the have to eat, but as a tourist it gets to be overwhelming and downright annoying after a while. If you can mentally prepare for this you'll have a great time. It really is a gorgeous sight to see! PS: Beware of pickpockets - a theft proof bag will do the trick, just remember to always keep it locked.
