Red Fort Near the gardens of the Taj Mahal stands the important 16th-century Mughal monument known as the Red Fort of Agra. This powerful fortress of red sandstone encompasses, within its 2.5-km-long enclosure walls, the imperial city of the Mughal rulers.
The Mughal Emperor Akbar, known as Akbar the Great, ruled an empire that stretched across North India from 1556 to 1605. His reign is considered the pinnacle of Mughal rule in India.
This is also one of the very good historical monument in Agra.
Built during the second half of the 16th century by the Emperor Akbar, Fatehpur Sikri (the City of Victory) was the capital of the Mughal Empire for only some 10 years. The hill-top city lies 37 kms from Agra in the state of Uttar Pradesh. This deserted city has two distinct complexes.
Buland Darwaza The gigantic gateway Akbar name Buland Darwaza or the Lofty Gate looms over the courtyard. It is the greatest architectural monument of Akbar's entire reign. Fatehpur Sikri, whether approached from Agra or Bharatpur is dominated by this stupendous structure.
