About Agra Fort Tourism

Agra Fort was constructed under the guidance of Qasim Khan Mir Bahar. The work was commenced during 1565 and the whole process took eight years to be completed.

It is said that thousands of workers including stone masons were employed to finish this site. Its entire exterior work was constructed by using finer materials and crafted more elegantly than any other fort in India.

Akbar could succeed immeasurably just because of the impressive role of architecture. In the modern era Agra Fort is known as one of the area’s seventh world heritage site.

It remained the preferred residence of Akbar during early years. Though, It was built by Akbar yet some of its parts were constructed by other Mughal emperors which became a collective brilliance work of Akbar, his son Jahangir and Grandson Shahjahan. Rest of the Mughal emperors also lived here namely Humayun and Aurangzeb.

Akbar ruled the country from Agra Fort. He won battles and stored the wealth and treasure in it including the most precious gem ‘Kohi-noor’. It is a huge fort containing royal apartments, mosques, assembly halls and a massive wall of two and a half km long, 69 feet high and Yamuna flows by protecting it from the rear side of fort.

Some important sites within Agra Fort:

Amarsingh Gate: It is a main entrance of the fort also called Lahore Gate.

Jahangiri Mahal (North Entrance):  The most notable remaining building built  by Akbar. It closely resembles the Jodha Bai’s palace at Fatehpur Sikri.

Anguri Bagh: Known as Grape garden and located to the east of Jahangiri  Mahal.

Mussaman Bruj: It is located north-east to the Anguri Bagh having a view of Taj Mahal across the river. Shahjahan was imprisoned into this place for 7 years by his son Aurangzeb and died gazing at Taj Mahal in 1666.

Sheesh Mahal (A palace of mirrors): It was constructed to take a private bath and getting dressed for Harem.

Diwan-i-Khas (A pavilion for Private Audience): It was a open hall built in 1636-37 by Shahjahan and emperor received kings, foreign ambassadors and other higher dignitaries.

Machhi Bhawan (Fish Pavilion): Located to the west of Diwan-i-khas. A place for royal ladies to conduct their Meena Bazar. A fish tank was also located in the center of the court.

Nagina Masjid (Gem Mosque): It was built by Shahjahan for his own use as a private mosque for the ladies of his Harem. Tradesman had set up temporary market there of luxury goods like Silk, Jewellery and brocade for sale and the royal ladies would have seen the market from a distant view point without being noticed by the tradesmen.

Diwan-i-Am (Pavilion for Public Audience): It was constructed by Shahjahan for public Audience where he dispensed justice by sitting on the legendary Peacock Throne. It is also known as last building which constructed within in the fort.
