Agra Fort

 

Agra Fort

Agra Fort is one of the Mughal architecture’s finest forts in India. It was originally built as a brick fort and was held by a clan of mighty Rajputs. However, it captured and rebuilt by the Mughal under the rule of Emperor Akbar, who had decided to shift his capital from Delhi there in the year 1558.

The fort houses many buildings inside like massive mosques, public and private restrooms and audience halls, sprawling palaces, watch towers, and gardened courtyards. The evening sound and light show at the fort is a must-watch since it attempts to recreate the Fort’s vast history.
