Once on top, you can stroll through the sprawling complex of courtyards and halls. Many of the rooms have delightful wall paintings with precious stones and mirrors inlaid in the walls. Most fascinating, perhaps, is the Sheesh Mahal ('Palace of Mirrors') where a single lamp light is reflected in the many mirrors, lighting up the entire room.

In 1584, only 14 years after moving here, Akbar abandoned this short-lived capital because of shortage of water. Upon arrival at Agra, visit the famous Taj Mahal built by Mughal Emperor, Shahjehan in 1630 for his beloved Queen Mumtaz Mahal to enshrine her mortal remains.
