Excellent Place to visit all are amazing facts with beautiful architecture. If visiting must take a official guide from the entry point. A lots a cheating people beware while you select a guide as well as when you purchase souvenirs there are always duplicate ones also. Prefer to buy from a government shops.
The red fort of Agra (not to be confused with Red Fort of Delhi), was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan after his ascension to the Mughal throne. An older fortified building called the Badalgarh was located at this site and came under the reign of several northern Indian empires such as the Delhi Sultanate, Afghans, Maratha and the Mughals. Agra fort was also the final resting place of Shah Jahan when he was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. ताजमहल से 2.5 किमी दूरी पर स्थित आगरा किला, मुगलकाल की वास्तुकला का एक और नायाब उदाहरण है. इस ऐतिहासिक किले में जहांगिरी महल, अकबरी महल के साथ-साथ चार बड़े-बड़े लाल दरवाजे भी हैं.
It's a beautiful place to visit you can see Taj from here. Great Engineering in ancient time of 400 years ago. Really impressive.
