Agra Fort - Review

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. The other decorative structures include Angora Bagh, Machhi Bhawan, and Zenana Mina Bazar.

  • The feeling which you get from visiting this place is far more pleasing than visiting modern places. The architecture of old times and the planning is even better than compared to present days buildings. So if you want to see the beauty of the past then visiting this place is a must. I must suggest you to hire a guide outside the fort to enhance your experience since they explain you all the details and make sure that you visit all the main spot of the fort since it is a large fort. So invest few extra bucks on them and you visit will be enhanced. Happy visiting

  • I could only wish that our modern architects and construction contractors would start using these same building designs and principles again. The detail and thought that went into it is an amazing. Depending on the building you are cooler and more comfortable than in one of the currently designed brick boxes. From the airflow, to the defense mechanisms, to the winter and summer buildings, the watering mechanism for the gardens, the prayer areas, bathhouse and alarm mechanisms. It would be an honour to be allowed to spend a couple of days there as a guest.

  • Agra fort is the Nice historical palace. 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.

  • This is a good place which you can visit on the weekend. Initially, I thought that I will be done within half an hour but once I entered the fort, I was amazed by the architecture because I am a great admirer of history and along with that we had to click some amazing pictures to show off, of course. And, the bonus point was that the weather was so good. Please wear comfortable shoes because your feet might hurt in case you want to explore the fort. P.s - People will tell you there is nothing so special about the place but trust me the place itself is beautiful and you will love the detailed carvings.
