About Agra Fort

Also called the Red Fort, this building is easily recognizable by its characteristic crimson-coloured walls, made from red sandstone. Behind them hides a number of beautifully decorated palaces, mosques, and towers, including the magnificent Jahangir’s Palace, the Palace of Mirrors, and the Khas Mahal. With all these historical buildings, this 16th-century fortress, which has often been called a city within a city, counts among the most beautiful gems of Mughal architecture in Agra, as well as India. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Since its construction in 1565-1573 at the orders of emperor Akbar, the fort had stood witness to many great moments in history. Due to its strategic position, it has been the site of multiple battles, like the battle of Tughlaqabad, or a battle during the Indian rebellion of 1857. It even served as a prison to a Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, when he was overthrown by his own son.
