Description: The Red Fort of Agra, an important 16th-century Mughal monument, stands near the gardens of the Taj Mahal. Surrounded by its 2.5-km-long enclosure walls, this great fortress of red sandstone encompasses the imperial city of the Mughal rulers. The site holds 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 two incredibly stunning mosques. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.

  Agra Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in Agra, India. The fort is also known as Lal Qila, Fort Rouge and Red Fort of Agra. It is about 2.5 km northwest of its much more famous sister monument, the Taj Mahal. The fort can be more accurately described as a walled palatial city. It is the most important fort in India. The great Mughals Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb lived here, and the country was governed from here. It contained the largest state treasury and mint. It was visited by foreign ambassadors, travellers and the highest dignitaries who participated in the making of history in India. --Wikipedia.
