(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Just 2.5 km (1.5 mi) from the Taj Mahal, the World Heritage Site of Agra Fort traces its origins back to before 1080 CE. Covering over 38 hectares (94 acres), the semicircular planned fort features 20 m (70 ft) high walls and four gates. At the western wall, find the Delhi gate: considered the most monumental, it was built in 1568 and served as the king's formal entrance. The fort also represents an important piece of India's architectural history, as historians claim that as many as 500 buildings were constructed within its walls.
