Photographer's Note

Though Agra is more famous world over as the city of Taj, Agra Red Fort is another dimension to the city that attracts tourists in hordes.
Built by Akbar in Red Sandstone when he was through with the consolidation of his power after accession to power in 1654, Agra Red Fort worked both as a military strategic point as well as the royal residence. Many of the palaces inside the fort were later added by next generations of Mughal Emperors like Jahangir and Shahjahan.
Most of the buildings within the Agra Fort are a mixture of different architectural styles. The assimilation of these different styles has given the buildings within the fort a distinctive look.
It's an ideal place for taking photos.
