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 has a lot of importance and steeped in history. A must visit for all the history buffs. Though 70% + of the fort is under control of the defence forces and not accessible to public, the balance.....  more »
  • Agra Fort and The Taj act as a coupling and on without the other is incomplete. The Mugal grandeur is evident when one sees the vast fort with numerous tales which ran for 3 generations after Akbar...  more »
  • Agra fort is close to the Taj Mahal, one can see the Tajmahal from the fort. Dont forget to take away the authentic sweet dish of Agra....Agra Ka Petha...which comes in diffferent royal flavours too.....  more »

  • 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.

  • Most admirable place, history lovers must visit and experience the architecture and scientifically design structure. Take a tour guide along with you to explore even more. Remember one thing about guide they cote more price than the actual price. So negotiate freely much as you can. Happy tour 😊 Nice fort, with garden You have to walk more, to see the whole fort. you can see the place where public met their king. had a great experience at Agra fort. It was well planned for tourists. Neat and clean and with good facilities. Really I have a best experience here. Most of the attraction inside the fort are the squirrels. Security do not allow food inside.
  • This fort is so well maintained. I absolutely love it and definitely looking forward to visit again. Tip :- If you're planning to look around and stay here for a while, please bring some nuts. There are tons of cute squirrels out there and they love being fed by the tourists. The lawns around the fort and so clean and trimmed. I would like to thank the people who are in charge of fort maintenance.
