I would recommend everyone to visit Agra Fort whenever you plan to visit the City. The Fort is huge, showcasing such luxury and richness of Mughal times. Best part i found is the Queen's Courtyard and the windows which allow you to have a beautiful view of Taj Mahal.

The "other" sight to see in Agra is the Red Fort or Agra Fort and it incorporates the Moghul (Muslim) Emperors' palace that was lived in by Shah Jehan and other emperors for over 300 years in the 1300 to 1700 period.

The fort is full passion. The emperors who built it and lived in it modified constantly as per their whims and fancies. However as per the design it is one of the greatest structures built by Moghals.

The Red Fort of Agra where Akbar spend his more matured years after being a family man.

The political and cultural story around the Red Fort is very interesting part of the history of Utar Pradesh, India. The construction of the Fort and the craftsmenship at that time is fascinating.

Agra Fort is one of the must see in India. Being an UNESCO World Heritage site, didn't expect people would piss on the wall corner but they did... (because it took 10 rupees to visit a washroom?)

The entire fort was not open to the public, the time we had visited. But it took us about 1 to 1.5 hours just to visit probably three-fourths of the area that was open to tourists! This is a huge monument of several rooms and beautiful "jharokas" with some historical significance too. The blend of marble and red stone was... More
