“Brilliant Monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Situated in Agra Fort, Musamman Burj attracts visitors for its architectural excellence and the fresh surroundings. The interior of the tower highlights the creativity of the engineers. Apart from being an monument of architectural wonder, Musamman Burj talks about the glorious past of India. Those who have visited the place would definitely look forward to making another trip and this is the magnetic effect of Musamman Burj.

“Spectacular vision of a Mughal court”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

As this was truly the first Mughal palace that we visited on our trip to the Golden Triangle, it was an incredible opportunity to get a sense of the size of a palace -- with its public spaces, private audience spaces, harem and private apartments. I certainly have a much greater appreciation for all the history of Mughal India I've read.

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

A well maintained fort. Interesting stories around the fort and the mahals inside it. Don't forget to catch the view of Taj from Agra fort.

Needs around 2-3 hr time to go around the entire fort

“One of the Agra Monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

You can see the Khas Mahal while you make your visit to Agra Fort. Like all the other fort areas, Khas Mahal has beautiful features and is worth spending a few moments over there. The best time to visit the Khas Mahal is from November to February. It is open on all days of the week from 6 am to 5:30 pm.

“good place to understand some aspects of Indian history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The place is awesome, but remember to get a guide. Not having a guide will make your trip less exciting. Unless you have a guide, you will not understand what significance this fort has in the history. I was told this fort has a great importance as many rulers ruled from here.
