Agra, The Red Fort

The Red Fort, built principally as a military establishment it was rebuilt by Akbar in 1565, from red sandstone. Many more additions were made by his grandsons. The massive fort is 2.5 km long and is considered as the predecessor of the Delhi Red Fort. The building and structures inside the fort gives an impression of a city within the city.

The marble pearl mosque inside the fort is one of the most beautiful mosques in India.
