Surprisingly, I lived this fort! It is huge and full of history! The red and white materials are a beautiful contrast. It was a palace and did and still has a military presence. Don't miss it if you are in Agra.

We went to Agra for the Taj Mahal but wouldn't have missed this. It is such an impressive fort and palace. The red stone is dominating and the contrast with the gardens wonderful. A definite place to visit.

The fort is one of the most impressive sites I've ever seen. The size, the design, the intricate marble and rock cuts to building each of the rooms and facilities. The history behind the building of the fort and it's relationship to the Taj Mahal is truly fascinating.

A great visit! Take a tour guide or read up on the history of the Fort before going it will be worth your while. The architecture is beautiful and the grounds are well maintained. A definite must see.

Interesting history with the Fort. Parts of it still used by the military today. View of the Taj Mahal at the back of the fort. It would have been spectacular in its day. Well worth visit

If you visit the Taj Mahal, then you will visit the fort as they are two sides of the same coin. A very interesting counterpoint to the beauty of the Taj Mahal. Be sure to have a guide or a guidebook to get the full context and history that this fort plays in the history of India.
