After the Majestic Taj Mahal, I was not hoping to see another monument built in splendour. I was wrong. Agra Fort is actually not very far from Taj Mahal. Taking the three wheel motorbike along the magnificient fort is beyond words.
The entrance was beautifully decorated and some of it’s remains still can be seen. Most of the fort were bulit using red sandstones. Marbles was used to built some of the building inside like the palace and the Diwan Am.
The Diwan Am was where the Maharaja received his subjects on various issues. It is said that it was used to be covered with thick, beautiful curtains in addition to it’s lavish highly decorated marble hall.
In the palace, we observed the room where Shah Jehan was put into house arrest by his own son. The room is where Shah Jehan could see the Taj Mahal where he had buried his favourite wife Mumtaz. I loose count on how many rooms are they in the palace. There are a lot!
