46

Construction begun in 1565 under Emperor Akbar and was completed in 1573. It was the central residence for four generations of Mughal emperors until 1638 when the capital moved from Agra to Delhi.

It covers an area of 94 hectares. The fort’s double red walls are more than 20 metres in height and 2.5 kilometres in circumference.

Agra Fort is approximately 2.5 kilometres (1.5 miles) from the Taj Mahal, so most tourists visit both sites in the same day. It is open from sunrise to sunset.
