Zoomed-in view of the decoration.

Agra Fort (The Red Fort in Agra) is such an under-estimated monument. It has always been over-shadowed by its more (insanely) famous sister monument The Taj Mahal. But a trip to Agra Fort opened my eyes. Indeed Taj Mahal is a piece of beauty, but Agra Fort is no less a star. Its magnificence, intricacy & thoughtfulness in architecture really makes us admire the art. I have decided to put up a few pictures of Agra Fort on this blog, that I clicked when I was there in Agra.

You will really appreciate the beauty of Agra Fort & sometimes you’ll feel, it also outshines Taj Mahal 🙂
