The Agra Fort is very nice, but as we visited it right after the Taj, our mind was still ful of Taj... From the fort, you had a nice view over the river and the Taj Mahal, just like Sjah Jahan could watch when he was locked up in here. The fort has all the predictable elements of an Indian palace: many small palaces, constructed for a different king each time, with a lot of history behind it. The cental court was even more special. It had a covered part with many columns and a wide open garden. The positioning of the columns was made that way that the king could easily spot the people passing by, but he wasn't noticed by those people. Very clever architecture.
