  • The strong, red sandstone, built by Akbar the great was declared by UNESCO. From the outside you can't imagine the architectural complexity of the place, an astonishing number of palaces and gardens arranged one behind the other, unexpected!. At the end of the various courts, you visit the Diwan i Am which was the real show of public hearings, open on three sides, columns and decorated with stucco and sandstone; the Emperor presided over famous Peacock Throne, seated on finely perforated lodge inside and decorated with a mosaic of semiprecious stones, while her ladies could watch unseen ambassadors and dignitaries, but also shows, parades and performances, through the jalis, the grates located on the back wall. Mirabile Mughal art, though initial state. In fact this is not yet the fusion of styles which will come later, but the juxtaposition of the works of artisans of different traditions and backgrounds that only with time will feed into the Mughal style.

  • The preservation of this monument despite India having been under the power of England until 1970. Shows when this country so emblematic respects your history and your memory.

  • 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..
