This sound and light show is an example of a worst show ASI can produce. It's not a sound and light show, it's a multimedia show which is very badly maintained. The projector lights have dimmed down. The whole show is narrative so you don't...More

Much less publicised but the place does deserve attention. A good place for walk and savour the lessons learnt in history book. Better go at sunset time. It remains open till 5.30 in the afternoon but gate closes at 5.

The fort is very old and is basically for any cultural events happens in evening or night. However there was boating as well. Due to less water it is no more a boating zone.

The Purana Qila Tour was nice. We enjoyed walking around the ancient ruins of the fort and it was surprisingly less crowded than what we had imagined it would be. Best to go when the weather is cooler and avoid weekends.

Day trip to Agra from Delhi is possible both by train and car...in term of cost is going to be more or less the same....by car you will get less time for s/s and by Bhopal Shatabdi express for to and fro journey u will have 10-12 hours in Agra so it is better by train.....you can arrange transport inAgra by searching in the box above corner...or you can contact any Agra member /DE for the same.
