Agra is probably the only city comparable to Delhi in terms of its contemporary history. The historical fame attached to Agra is greatly attributed to the Mughals rule. It was the capital of Sikandar Lodhi in 1501 from the North Western Frontiers, who discovered this place. Yet, it soon passed into the hands of the mighty Mughals who virtually held the sway for ages.
Agra is one of the most significant earliest cities of India with rich historical and cultural value. This striking town is situated in the holy branch of Brij Bhoomi (home of Lord Krishna), on the right bank of river Yamuna. In ancient days the city was strengthened with sixteen gates and was considered as one of the powerful cities of India.
Agra was the Mughal capital of India during 16th and 17th century. Emperor Akbar founded the present city. The city of Agra developed and rose into prominence during the first hundred years of the Mughal rule. Both Babur and Humayun, the first two Mughal emperors, built a few structures here, but none of them were of particular historical significance. Then Akbar, the son of Humayun took Agra to great heights under his rule.
Agra has three UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort in the city and Fatehpur Sikri nearby. There are also many other buildings and tombs from Agra’s days of glory as the capital of the Mughal Empire.
