The Agra Fort is a historical fort bearing the honorary designation of a World Heritage Site. The fort is built on a semicircular design, and huge circular pillars form the supporting base of the fort walls. The fort has impressive defensive measures that are very interesting to see.

Of the four entrances, the one named the Delhi Gate- is the most famous entrance. The Lahore Gate and Khizri Gate are the other two gates popular for their architecture. The most splendid attractions of Agra Fort are the public and private conference halls named Diwan-i-Aam and Diwan-i-Khas respectively, the two Golden Pavilions, the Jahangiri Mahal, the white marble structures of Khas Mahal and the mosques Mina Masjid, Moti Masjid, and Nagina Masjid. The royal glass mosaic studded building named Sheesh Mahal and the marble palace house named Khas Mahal are especially innovative.

  • Massive place with different 'themes'. If you have an imaginative mind, visiting the Agra Fort might make you feel like you're travelling back in time. Just trying to picture myself living there in my head was pretty wild. My favourite was the white marbled section! Wish there were more brief descriptions for each part of the palace though...

  • It is grand and beautiful. We had a friend who has visited earlier as a guide. And loved to hear all the stories of security and protection, grandeur and administration. Would recommend to go. Always take a guide. Is a lot more interesting with one.

  • Although most of the fort is inaccessible as it has been occupied by the army the public area are quite nice. The place itself is amazing, architecture is second to none. Reason for the 4 star is because of the lack of services. Visitors have to wait atleast 20min for tickets as there is limited counters and security inside the fort should do more to make sure that people don't scribble or deface the monuments.

  • You can bargain a good price... The guide can get you a ticket. Beautiful location which is spread across a large site so make sure you leave enough time to visit. Half of the palaces were shut unfortunately during my visit. Would have been good to have a sign before hand. No food or drink inside

  • A massive fort which is well worth a visit. It'll need a good couple of hours to walk around. The ticket office is just next to the main road before you head up. I'm not a fan of "tour guides", but here it's probably worth it so you can at least be guided round the place. Note that you can't take food or tobacco in...so get rid of them before you arrive.
