About Agra Fort

A walled city in its own right, the Agra Fort stands 2.5 kilometers away from the Taj Mahal and is another one of the Mughal architectural gems in India to have made it to the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. It may interest you to know that this fortification built and rebuilt by various dynasties that ruled the city. However, it was Emperor Shah Jahan who worked on carving the magnificent gardens and grand palaces within the fort. Among the several beautiful buildings inside, some of the most prominent ones include Diwan-e-Aam, which the Mughal emperors used to meet the public audience, Diwan-e-Khas where the emperor would receive royal visitors, Jahangiri Mahal and Rang Mahal, which were utilized by the women of the royal household, Khas Mahal. It also includes Macchi Bhawan or fish enclosure, which was used by the royal harem, and the three mosques Mina Masjid, Moti Masjid and Nagina Masjid. Shah Jahan was believed to have been imprisoned in the Musamman Burj, a massive octagonal tower with a balcony facing the Taj Mahal where he is said to have spent his last eight years looking at his architectural masterpiece, the Taj Mahal.
