Octagonal Tower

Octagonal Tower is a grand tower, which was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. This impressive tower stands tall in Agra, Uttar pradesh the same place where one of the Eight Wonders of the World, Taj Mahal is present with its eternally enchanting beauty. The Octagonal Tower is a significant part of the massive and all-inclusive Red Fort in Agra.

The Red Fort was built by Akbar as a military establishment but later Shah Jahan constructed some beautiful Mahals inside it. These structures partly transformed Red Fort into a massive Palace, making it look like a city contained by another city.
