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.

  • This is a very beautiful place to visit. It shows the architecture of Red Forts (saw another one in Delhi) and gives a great feeling of how people used to live. Beautiful red bricks mixed with marble and plentiful of religious symbols give a feeling of soul freedom. At the same time you can grasp the feeling of troops stationing there before India independence. Part of the fort is strictly military area where you cannot enter. It will be also very hot there so choose timing carefully. Bonus are monkeys which you can see meandering around.
  • It has got adequate parking space. It took me roughly 1.5 h to complete the tour. 2 h is a decent time to spend. It is an awesome monument. I paid rs 400/- for the guide. But it is worth taking a guide. He will also help you in taking photographs. Adequate facility for water and toilets available. But rec to carry a water bottle.
  • A very good and peaceful place. Wonderful architecture. Their is a place in the palace where you can hear the whisper done on the diagonal corners. Cool. Do have trip with your whole family. Especially children will increase there knowledge after a visit. For sure. A well ventilated place. Cold drinking water is also available for summer. The entry ticket or entry fee for Indians are ₹40 (till 17/07/18; after this i don't know).
  • This is a great place of historical importance, and a perfect example of the luxurious and well maintained lifestyle of royals here. The place is in perfect shape, proving that it is well preserved. Some of the most fascinating things are - a bathtub made is solid stone in those ancient times, royal kids bedrooms in palanquin’s shape from outside, precious stones like emerald, ruby, sapphire, etc. embedded in the walls of the royal rooms (although some of them are lost or stolen over the years, you can still see some of those precious stones glowing when you flash a torch over them, the guides would help you show those). There is a prayer room, inner courtyard and outer courtyard.The toilets at the entrance are well maintained, which is not usually the case in such tourist attractions
  • Majestic. Excellently well organised. The structure is so well maintained that it almost seems that it may have been built yesterday. The views are spectacular from the accessible turrets. Some of the building is being restored, there are some areas where visitors are prohibited from entering due to safety regulations. There are plenty of shady alcoves and vaulted arches under which to ponder the fabulous scene.Foodstuffs certainly not permitted inside. Such a wonderful artwork. Exceptionally big in dimension. Have a manual. That would certainly aid you a great deal as ton of segments possess big background. Great deal of areas offered to rest and also coldness along with your loved ones. There are plenty of shady alcoves and vaulted arches under which to ponder the fabulous scene. in a period reigning from 1526 to 1556, three dynasties took control of the fort. Most part of the fort is made of red sandstone. Some of parts in the fort is now under control of Indian Military and it is closed for the public. Entry fees for Indian citizens is Rs.40/- and for Foreigners is Rs.550/- per person.
