"AGRA FORT" The Red Fort Tip by BerniShand

The Red Fort, Agra: 187 reviews and 453 photos


This is a massive fort across the river from the Taj Mahal.
Shah Jahan was imprisoned here after being overthrown by his son and he spent the last days of his life confined to his rooms overlooking the beautiful building he created in memory of his favourite wife
As he reputedly died from a combination of alcohol and aphrodisiacs it is debatable how deeply he mourned her though.....
