Just a kilometre upstream from the Taj Mahal, the 16th century Mughal fort rises magnificently from the banks of the Yamura River. Built entirely of red sandstone in 1565 by Emperor Akbar, this was the imperial city of the Mughal rules when Agra was their capital. It was originally constructed as a military fort, surrounded by two kilometres of impenetrable double walls – within you’ll be able to explore exquisite palaces, spacious audience halls and intricate mosques, set amongst lush, landscaped gardens.
