Calm and serene Fort with History in its Heart

Agra fort has been standing for centuries with lots of history in its Heart. Once a seat of Power during Mughal India, and an important part of Indian Freedom Struggle in 1857, now a picturesque monument.
Walk around in your sneakers, do carry your own water.
Well maintained by Archeological Survey of India.
Major part is under Army.
Carry a DSLR if you are a photography buff.(avoid my clicks, they are substandard).

In 1857, Maharaj Scindia and Dinkar Rao took shelter here saving themselves from Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi.

Take a government guide, else self study is the best thing.

While visiting Taj Mahal, do not miss out on the Agra Fort which is quite close by. It's beautifully built, and can get you great pictures!!

Lot of things to see in the fort. Will recommend hiring a guide who can provide some background and historical significance of the place.

As advised by staff at our hotel, We booked online but still had to queue as entrances are few.

Interesting learning about the Mughal Empire and wow! The Architecture, courtyards and gardens and history moves you into times gone-by.

A Must see! We got Our Guide, at the entrance, Prakash who was very enthusiastic and spoke good English!

He even gave us a recommendation of a TV series on the Mughal empire with English subtitles to watch when we return home.

Highly recommend this visit.

I went to Agra Fort, usually people when visit Agra go to see The Taj but other than Taj this place comes as a hidden gem. When you are here in Agra Fort do hire a guide as he will tell you in detail about the beautiful architecture here.
I would rate my experience as 4.5/5
You must must must visit Agra Fort

The place is beautiful but if you saw Red Fort in Delhi, its almost the same. You have to buy tickets online.
We hired tour guide and it was mistake. He asked too much money (1400 rupees) as we understood later (300 is enough). Moreover , his English was really hard to get. He was in hurry and finished everything in an hour. The huge advantage was photos - he knew the best places, and we didn’t need to stay in queue- he got us through it. That’s it. Not much information was said about the Fort - you can read the same online.
I think you can walk there by yourself and enjoy the view.

Had visited long back when full fort area was open to visitors. Now only 30/40% area is open for visitors. Still you can see important places. It is thrilling to see Taj from one of balconies.
Well maintained.
