The Agra Fort

The fort was begun in 1565 by Emperor Akbar, and work continued through to the reign of his grandson Shan Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal.  The fort was mainly a military building and part of it is still used by the Indian Army.  However tourist can visit some of it and you get views of the Taj Mahal down the river.

   This is the main entrance to the fort.
