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.

If you can deal with the crowds and some of the queues to get in this place is fantastic. It invokes a Tolkien sense of adventure from an age long since past but you can imagine the grandeur. Just beware of the modern day siege of hawkers and touts as you enter and leave. And maybe get a researched local guide who can talk you through the history of this imposing fortress.
Amazing experience. The guide narrated interesting tales about the kings and queens that added to the whole experience. Audio guide is also available. It's a good place to click lots of pictures and selfies with the beautiful surroundings. The entire tour can be completed within two hours. Overall, it's a must visit place when in Agra.
This place is a heaven..We had a great day at this place..The beauty of the monument is insane..Though this is a old build monument but it still gives a tough fight to other new monuments..It looks great at nights..But the back side of the monument is full of garbage..Garbage is dumped on the other side of this monument.. Continues maintenance is going on at this place so that it retains it's beauty..Tickets are very cheap here especially if you are a indian..Indians get a privilege in terms of service..There is a tight security at this pace and eatables are strictly prohibited..There are various photographers which take awesome pictures and they are cheap too..All food stalls are outside the main compound..All the artificial water bodies here have been closed..Otherwise this is a great place to visit..
Very prominent property and great architecture. Somewhere it was a bit disappointing that we are not mindful of others. The experience would have been further amazing had it been little less crowded. Probably one should avoid weekends to ditch the local rush.
wonders of the world...romantic universe... Must visit...a very lovely place where you'll visit again and again and again and never get bored at all...pure white marble magic... wonderful architecture... Nice lawns...perfect view..... Never miss to forget at least once in lifetime.Very Nice place. You can have a tour in one and a half our. It's better to get a guide or else you'll not find it interesting
