In Agra, we paid our tribute to the Taj Mahal, stopped by the Baby Taj, and visited the Red Fort in Agra.
The Red Fort is as the title indicates, a massive red fort in Agra. The Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan who built the Taj Mahal spent his last years imprisoned in this fort with a view of the Taj Mahal. And by ‘imprisoned’ it means that he was contained to an area of the fort that is larger than the average person’s home. Which I suppose felt like prison to an emperor.
Inside the fort there were many different sections- gardens, rooms, beautiful views.
We saw a room with a shower for the emperors – they had running water for bathing back then!
Oh, and there were also lots of men taking selfies of themselves and posing for pictures.
The fort had a ton of monkeys climbing all over the place. You think this one got annoyed at us taking pictures of it?? This was not taken with a zoom lens, we were right in this monkey’s face.
And here we are taking one last look at the massive fort as we are driving away.
