About Agra

History of Agra is lavishly evident from the numerous historical monuments in and around the city. Though the history of Agra city is mostly connected with the Mughal dynasty, numerous other rulers also contributed to the rich history of Agra.

Agra was founded by Sikandar Lodhi in the 16th century. Babur (founder of the Mughal dynasty) also dwelled for some time in Agra and introduced the concept of square Persian-styled gardens here. Emperor Akbar built the Agra fort; Jahangir beautified it with palaces and gardens. Shahjahan marked the zenith of Mughal architecture, when he built the Taj, the seventh wonder of the World.

But Agra is not only about those majestic monuments. On the discorded streets of Agra lives the history of colourful centuries. Carrying the legacy, marble stone painting and inlays are still matchless. Food is Agra is a fusion of various cultures.
