What to See

It does not take much for a traveler’s eye to discover that there’s more to Agra than just the enchanting TajMahal. The city is a virtual gateway to a world of discovery… where moments of an era that’s long gone, still echoes the tale of this historic town. The older city of Agra has impressively retained much of its resplendent history and is known for three UNESCO world Heritage sites of TajMahal, Agra Fort and FatehpurSikri.The fortified core composed by the Agra Fort originally served the Rajputs, as an impregnable, protective screen against any invasions. It finally fell in 1081 to Mahmud Shah, the governor of the regions of the northwest and the Punjab. Jaipal, the then Rajput ruler, defended the fort valiantly but surrendered to the Ghaznavi army when reinforcements failed to arrive. Though Agra was sacked and owed its allegiance to Ghazni, the Rajput rulers still effectively controlled it. It was during the Second Battle of Tarain in 1192 that the Ghaznavids led by Muhammad bin Sam established their rule. Following the Ghaznavids, the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate was marked by an asserted allegiance to Delhi. Intermittent revolts and a revived Rajput presence in Agra that took control of most of the region soon became a threat. Agra came under the direct control of Sikandar Lodi in 1492 after the governor of Agra, Haibat Khan, rebelled against Delhi. Given the central location of the city, Sikandar shifted the capital to Agra During the Mughal Emperor Akbar's reign, Agra also came to be known as 'Akbarabad’.
