Agra Fort

This is a beautiful monument which was built by Emperor Akbar in the year 1565. The Red Fort was initially built as an establishment for the army but was later extended and beautified to convert it into a magnificent palace complex. Agra Fort is also known as the Red Fort of Agra as it is completely made of a beautiful red colour sandstone and is also connected to Delhi by a number of networks. There are four prominent gates of this fort but the Amar Darwaza after the name of Maharaja Amar Singh is still used for entry to the fort. Many of the palaces which were earlier built are not found now but among those which still remain are the Jahangiri Mahal, Diwan-i-Aam, Diwan-i-Khas, Moti Masjid, Shaha Burj and Mausam Burj. The Jahangiri Mahal is the most attractive out of all palaces. This was a dedication of Akbar to his beloved wife Jodha Bai. It is a multi divisional palace and is still very attractive. This monument is one of the most visited tourist attractions of Uttar Pradesh.
The imposing Agra Fort was the beginning of the Mughal grandeur.

Agra Fort is one of the most important forts in India because of its rich cultural heritage and its importance in Indian history. I won’t get into the historical significance of this fort as once can easily get all the information here.
Thereafter we proceeded to Agra Fort, another outstanding example of Mughal architecture, and the seat of Mughal reign and administration for three generations. A visit to the Diwan-e-Aam, ‘Hall of Public Audience’ and the Royal Pavilions is not to be missed.

3. Agra FortAgra Fort is also known as Lal Qila, Fort Rouge or Red Fort of Agra, and is listed as UNESCO Heritage Site. The Red Fort is at a distance of 2.5 km from Taj, located on the bank of Yamuna River. It is the most special monument decorated by Mughals as their residence which houses Pearl Mosque (aka Moti Masjid), Diwan-i I Khas, Diwan-i I Aam, Khās Mahal, Shīsh Mahal (mirrored palace), Musamman Burj and Jahangiri Mahal. One of the finest example of Mughal's architecture, each with remarkable handiwork and ornamentation, which make this place a delight for every photographer and architect, and history lovers. You also get a magnificent look of unearthly Taj from Lal Qila.

Then, again we got into a queue to see the Taj Mahal closely and there I heard again lots of untold stories by people from different regions and yes, countries too. We got selfies there too and yes, I met this beautiful girl whose name was Salma and she had this beautiful eyes, Which made me fall in love with her instantly and she said yes to get clicked with me too, though she was very shy. After all this, we went to meena bazaar for having lunch and buy some souvenir for our families and loved ones, but after Going to different shops, we all came to the same conclusion that it is a costly affair.
