The Agra Fort

This is Agra Fort, in Agra, India. It is located a few kilometers northwest of the famous Taj Mahal, which was built by Shah Jahan for his wife. The fort has a long and interesting history, which dates back to 1080 AD. At the end of his life, Shah Jahan was imprisoned by his son in the fort and died in one of the towers. The stunning views of the Taj are hauntingly apparent from every vista of he fort. The fort is adorned with decorations and elaborate workmanship – absolutely beautiful; I loved this place, almost as much as I loved the Taj.
