Red Fort at Agra or the Agra Fort - Photographs

Here are some pictures of the Agra Fort, also called the Red Fort at Agra. The fort is more than a thousand years old and is an UNESCO World Heritage site, located near the Taj Mahal. The fort is massive, almost like a walled city. These photos capture parts of the fort, both interior and exterior, showing the architectural style used.  It's significance in Indian history is considerable because the Mughal kings like Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb lived here, this was the seat of their governance. It used to host the state treasury and mint. 

This photograph shows the majestic towers at one of the entry points of the Red Fort in Agra. Note the carved and sculpted pillars. At the top are the look-out towers.
