Recommendation by Lemi
Upon arriving, the Agra Fort captures attention at once as it rises in red sandstone. The material was popularly used among Agra’s historical spots, with this fort complex as its most massive masterpiece. Agra Fort housed the royal family, notably the Khas Mahal and Jahangir Palace. It was where Babur sent his son Humayun to seize India’s reins. It was where Emperor Shah Jahan spent his last days, imprisoned by his son in his marble prison. The columned pavilion called Diwan-i-Aam (The Hall of Public Audience) served as a court where people from all walks came to the Emperor with their grievances. With the fall of the Mughal era, and the death of Emperor Auringzeb, the fort was seized and fell from its former glory—until modern-day tourism has brought back life within the walls.
