History of Agra

Agra was the capital of India during the time of Mughals in the 16th and 17th centuries. Situated on the west bank of the Yamuna river, 204 kms south of Delhi, Agra has superb monuments left behind by the Mughal rulers. The Taj Mahal and the magnificent Agra Fort are testimony to this. Agra became the capital of Sikandar Lodi in 1501 but was soon passed on to the Mughals. It was under Akbar that Agra first ascended to its heights of magnificence. From 1570 to 1585, Akbar ruled from nearby Fatehpur Sikri, the place he had to abandon due to paucity of water. Shah Jahan is the name associated with Agra. Shah Jahan built Taj Mahal, Jama Masjid and most of the palace buildings inside the Agra Fort. Between 1638 and 1650, he built the Red Fort and Jama Masjid in Delhi. In 1761, Agra fell to the Jats who did much damage to the city and its monuments. In 1770, it was taken over by the Marathas and later in 1803, passed on to the British.
