This is the best fort you will find in the whole state of Uttar Pradesh and is also considerd to be one of the strongest in the whole country. This was commissioned in the 16th century by Raja Bir Singh Deo of the Bundela Dynasty but is popular mainly because of the bravery of Rani Lakshmibai who is better known as Jhansi ki Rani. During the time of the Sepy Mutiny in the year 185, Rani Lakshmibai showed extreme valour though she had to die in the hands of the British. After her death even the British had to accept that they had never seen such a brave queen earlier. The British made two huge and strong armies led by the two ablest generals and the wueen of Jhansi had to die when she could not fight single handedly. The fort then went to the King of Scindias but then was again exchanged for Gwalior. The fort is much in ruins now but the might is still clearly seen. As you enter the lower gate hearing the stories of the past, you will feel a shiver running along your spine after hearing the bloodbath that took place in the same place. The Bijli tank is still inside the fort and the museum is also a place to visit. This museum mainly houses exhibits related to the history of Bundelkhand and Jhansi.

Home to the seventh wonder of the world, the Taj Mahal, Agra is best explored on foot or rickshaw or a rented bike. Renowned worldwide as not only a mausoleum but an epitome of love, the Taj Mahal is profusely crowded during the day till evening. If you're looking to escape the crowd, however, the city's Mughal beauty can be enjoyed from several rooftops and secret locations in the city, or at an early morning yoga session just 100 metres away from the monument. If you want to go further, why not go into the depths of its history through the light and sound shows and plays at the Kalakriti Cultural and Convention Centre. Agra annually hosts the 10-day festival, Taj Mahotsav, a rostrum for culture and colour in the month of February, known for celebrity performances, food stalls and a creative congregate of about 400 artisans across the country showcasing their exquisite art and craft items. Agra easily competes with Delhi's Mughlai monopoly with decade old restaurants such as Bilal Restaurant and Hyderabad Handi, while the Agra cant area houses local food. Speaking of local, Korai village remains a lesser known location, which can give you an entirely different experience and a chance to interact with villagers. Travelling through this beautiful necropolis, one can also enjoy quiet spots, wholesome with nature such as the Keertham Lake and the Sur Sarovar Bird Sanctuary, before signing off with a visit to the Agra Fort, I'timad-Ud-Daulah (also known as baby Taj), Chini Ka Raza and Akbar's Tomb, architectural tributes to Mughal history, admired above and beyond India.
