  • The fort is HUGE, and so wonderfully built. There is a literal maze of rooms and passageways inside that it takes at least an hour to explore it fully. And the views of the Taj from some of the rooms ...  more »
  • It is very magnificent when you see from outside. For hundreds of years, it is still standing strong like a warrior. It is even impressive if you see inside, especially when you visit Shah Jahan's pal...  more »
  • The fort as a whole is reminiscent of the forbidden city in China ... a whole set of buildings that were functional and now purely tourist! Called the effort to view!

  • A wonderful place if you have a good guide who can explain everything to you. Yes, there are other ways up to it, but the elephant ride just has to be done. Odds are very high that you'll be there on a very hot and sunny day, so be prepared. Beware of the monkeys on the way out of the back. They will grab things if they look like possible food.
  • I think this is one of the coolest forts in India. It's well preserved and there is a mini taj inside. It is a bit pricey, 400 or 500 for foreigners, and it only takes about an hour or 1.5 hrs to visit. They have a place to store your bag/luggage before visiting the inside. It's free, if the guy asks for a donation or a fee, don't give it to him. We picked up our bags while some Indians were dropping theirs off and they chastised the bag guy for trying to take money from us.
  • Agra Fort is a historical place of great interest. Very clean and amusing architecture. But first of all you should hire a guide. This would help you to know about the different places. The amazing historical interest of Agra fort will astonish you. Hope you would visit and enjoy!
  • Likes this historic sites very much. Can be said was better than the Delhi's red fort. Lot to learn about the Indian history. Made by the Mughal rulers. Laundered space. Won't take more than 1 to 2 hours.
  • Entry fee Rs. 50 per head for Indian but foreigners per head Rs. 500 to visiting Lots of amazing places and things but there is no time to see all and also enjoy... Best to Visit own vehicles don't come in travels..
