A glorious example of traditional Indian Mhugal architecture, Agra Fort is a sprawling complex in the middle of the city. After passing through its towering red walls and gate, we were immersed in wide courtyards, ancient pools, beautiful art and architecture, and scenic views of Agra and the Taj Mahal.
Unfortunately, by the time we got there it was 2pm and 114 degrees: not the best way to enjoy a stroll around the fort.“Ooh, there’s a nice spot in the shade over there,” was a common refrain that afternoon.
Glorious photographs of iconic scenes were shot in passing: because it was just too hot to stop. At one point, we had to take our shoes off to enter a mosque. We didn’t make it very far.
