” Emperor Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal, was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb in Agra Fort, from which he had a view of the building erected for his wife. Shah Jahan is said to have died in the Musamman Burj, a tower with a beautiful marble balcony  in Agra Fort”

then i took the picture above (taj mahal as viewed from agra fort)

3 world heritage sites : Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Fahtepur Sikri

With 3 world heritage sites adjacent, Agra is worth visiting more than just the Taj Mahal. The story of the Agra Fort touched me more than the famous Taj Mahal love story .. it could be because I traveled alone to the symbol of love, then I did not feel the atmosphere of love there πŸ™‚
I put a lot of pictures to give you an idea of how amazing heritage sites in India. Look at the details. India is not only photogenic, but it is beautiful indeed

      gheys, thank u :). unfortunately, i havent been to Iran! hehehe

  2. Really nice to see the images from Agra fort here, usually people goes for a single day trip to Agra, visit Taj Mahal and come back.

    Looks like we need a few days to explore these beautiful monuments in Agra and around, right?

      hmm i did it in one day, even half day, more precisely :). I started from delhi in the morning by Shatabdi express. arrived agra then explore fahtepur sikri, taj mahal and agra fort. Then I took the afternoon train to jaipur. I visited delhi, agra, jaipur and udaipur in 5days hehehe

      1. That’s pretty impressive… πŸ™‚ I thought you had spent more than a day in Agra itself.
