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.

  • 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 great place of historical importance, and a perfect example of the luxurious and well maintained lifestyle of royals here. The place is in perfect shape, proving that it is well preserved. Some of the most fascinating things are - a bathtub made is solid stone in those ancient times, royal kids bedrooms in palanquin’s shape from outside, precious stones like emerald, ruby, sapphire, etc. embedded in the walls of the royal rooms (although some of them are lost or stolen over the years, you can still see some of those precious stones glowing when you flash a torch over them, the guides would help you show those). There is a prayer room, inner courtyard and outer courtyard.The toilets at the entrance are well maintained, which is not usually the case in such tourist attractions

  • Majestic. Excellently well organised. The structure is so well maintained that it almost seems that it may have been built yesterday. The views are spectacular from the accessible turrets. Some of the building is being restored, there are some areas where visitors are prohibited from entering due to safety regulations. There are plenty of shady alcoves and vaulted arches under which to ponder the fabulous scene. One really must visit this historic site
