Agra Fort built in red sand stone, it is the one of the famous sights of Agra other than Taj Mahal. The semi circular fort was started by Akbhar in 1565, and completed in 1574. The Agra Fort is open for visitors from sunrise to sunset. The beauty of this inner quadrangle is its fine proportions and rich ornamentation, enhanced by the wonderful rhythmic play of light and shadow, produced by the bracket form of construction and the admirable disposition of the doors, windows, openings, and colonnades. The northern side of the quadrangle is occupied by a pillared hall. The weather is at its best between the months of November and March. A number of interesting festivals are celebrated in the city at this time, with the added attraction of performances by renowned artists from all over India.
