#2 of 182 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.

  • The Agra Fort is absolutely outstanding. The guide helped us to gain much knowledge about the Fort. It is better than the Red Fort of Delhi. Agra Fort must be watched by every tourist who visits Agra ...  more »

  • The red fort of Agra (not to be confused with Red Fort of Delhi), was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan after his ascension to the Mughal throne. An older fortified building called the Badalgarh was located at this site and came under the reign of several northern Indian empires such as the Delhi Sultanate, Afghans, Maratha and the Mughals. Agra fort was also the final resting place of Shah Jahan when he was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. ताजमहल से 2.5 किमी दूरी पर स्थित आगरा किला, मुगलकाल की वास्तुकला का एक और नायाब उदाहरण है. इस ऐतिहासिक किले में जहांगिरी महल, अकबरी महल के साथ-साथ चार बड़े-बड़े लाल दरवाजे भी हैं.
  • If u really love historical building then u are at the right place. Evening music and light show was just awesome except the presence of mosquitoes. Take a guide for better experience.
  • Good place to spend 2/3 hours. Taking a guide is recommended but they will ask for 500/600bucks initially. DO BARGAINING AND IT WILL COME DOWN TO 50-100BUCKS. You will take a time-ride back to Mughal era spending a few hours here.
  • Lovely n historical place, Delhi's Red fort was inspired by this Agra Fort, lots of historical things, n a must go place for the foreign tourists to get to know Indian historical fort or palaces architecture... If you study well or able to get a good guide then you will know how rich Indian culture was even 1000s of years before... # there's also taking wall, which means if you whisper in a corner of the hall then any one on the other side of the hall can listen your voice very loud n clearly... Furthermore there are many exciting things to explore in depending on the interest of the visitor)... Enjoy...👍
  • Same As Red Fort Of Delhi. The King Made This As To Replicate The Red Fort Of Delhi. good Place To Hang Out

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.
