About Agra Fort, Agra

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.

  • "All type of communication is good and day night service available." "Ultimate place ,we can spend full day but carry water bottle and light food." "Good tourist place and environment but less facilities..." Excellent place to visit. Our guide was keen to get through the tour which made everything a bit rushed, but we could have gone back through by ourselves if we'd wanted to. It's really an attraction not to be missed while in Agra. The work that went into building this fort is beyond comprehension...all before electricity and power tools. And to think we only saw 30% of the place, with the military occupying the rest! Highly recommend a visit to this fort for all travellers.

  • This place is more than huge awesome... especially for me.. i never seen anything like that before.. u jst cant imagine.. how the workers of that time (when there were no equipment available like present) built that type of fort.. hats off to that workers.. Its design, color, prints etc. etc.. all are just a Masterpiece...

  • Very nice experience. I think everyone should visit this place once in their life. Historical place. I don't have to say much about the Taj because everyone knows about it. Be it Indian or foreigner. As far as my experience is concerned it was one of the most exciting moments that I experienced. Lovely place to visit.

  • I really enjoyed this fort. It's very scenic with quite lush green gardens inside, and a lot of history to take in. I would STRONGLY recommend getting an audio guide from your app store called CaptivaTour. It allows one free tour and I took the Agra Fort tour. It took about 1 hour 45 minutes to go through the "standard" guide (though there are varying length ones). Bring some good noise cancelling headphones and enjoy the tour. I still feel that 550 rupees is pretty expensive. I'm paying 350 a night at the hostel I'm staying at so this is comparatively crazy expensive.
