  Jahangiri Mahal, emperor's main harem
by Sharrie

AGRA FORT (Agra) may not have been as famous as the Red Fort but it's certainly one of the very important forts.

We visited Agra Fort after our sunrise at the Taj Mahal.
This is where Shah Jahan was once confined by his son Aurangzeb & where he spent the last days of his life overlooking the Taj Mahal across the Yamuna River.

Agra Fort was originally built by Emperor Akbar between 1565 & 73.
