Another architectural jewel in this city is the Agra Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is spread across 94 acres so you will need about two hours to explore the entire monument. With the Taj Mahal overshadowing it, one can easily forget that Agra has one of the finest Mughal forts in India. Aanarkali darwasa, place were akbar used to address his people are all worth seeing.The hall once housed Shah Jahan’s legendary Peacock Throne, which was inset with precious stones – including the famous Koh-i-noor diamond. Along the eastern edge of the fort you’ll find Musamman Burj and Khas Mahal, the wonderful white-marble octagonal tower and palace where Shah Jahan was imprisoned for eight years until his death in 1666, and from where he could gaze out at the Taj Mahal, the tomb of his wife. When he died, Shah Jahan’s body was taken from here by boat to the Taj. The now closed Mina Masjid, set back slightly from the eastern edge, was his private mosque.
