The Red Fort, Agra: 187 reviews and 453 photos


Built of red sandstone, with inlaid white marble detail, the fort is surrounded these days by a somewhat arid moat. This in its time was filled with water from the Yamuna River and acted as a deterrent to challenging forces. In addition there is 2.5kms of walls surrounding the fort and standing at 21 metres high.
