Most people travel to Agra to visit the famous Taj Mahal, however just 2.5 km away lies the Agra Fort. Before our visit to the Taj Mahal we took time to explore the Agra Fort. Getting lost in the numerous rooms, many of which have beautiful views over to the Taj, was a highlight of our time in Agra.
The fort was constructed with double ramparts and 4 gates one of which opened onto the river. Due to current activity by the Indian Army tourists are only permitted to enter through one of the main gates.
We loved strolling around, snapping photos, and admiring the traditional Indian architecture at the Agra Fort.
