Event date: 4th July 2009
I've been advised that the best time to visit Taj Mahal was in early morning when the marble floor was not yet hot from the burning sun. Thus, after I managed to complete a tour in Fatehpur Sikri a day before I checked in to Park Plaza Hotel, I covered both Taj Mahal and Agra Fort on my own, first half of the day of day 2 in Agra. As soon as I finished touring the Agra Fort, I quickly went back to the hotel, freshen-up and checked out heading back to Delhi. Let's read the facts of Agra Fort obtained from the website and enjoy the photos of them.
Near the gardens of the Taj Mahal stands the important 16th-century Mughal monument known as the Red Fort of Agra. I took a trishaw rides from Taj Mahal to Agra Fort and asked the same trishaw guy to wait for me to take me back to the same spot he picked me up. It was so near and faster by trishaw from Taj Mahal to Agra Fort. This powerful fortress of red sandstone encompasses, within its 2.5-km-long enclosure walls, the imperial city of the Mughal rulers. It comprises many fairy-tale palaces, such as the Jahangir Palace and the Khas Mahal, built by Shah Jahan; audience halls, such as the Diwan-i-Khas; and 2 very beautiful mosques.
