Agra Fort

Although the Taj Mahal is the main reason why so many tourists visit Agra, the city does have a couple of other attractions worth passing an hour or so. The first of these is the Agra Fort, also known as the Red Fort – not to be confused with Delhi’s Mughal palace of the same name.

In fact Agra’s Red Fort, built by Akbar the third (Mughal Emperor from 1556 to his death in 1605) is earlier than Shah Jahan’s Delhi fortress, for which it served as a model.
