Which Fort? Agra Fort

In India, you could spend a lifetime visiting temples and a lifetime and a half visiting forts. Or is it the other way around? Agra boasts an impressive fort, built by Akbar in the 1560's and the place remained the seat of the Mughal Empire for generations. Quite a rock they left behind.

A look at the fine, open air Diwan-i-Am, a sort of public courtyard hall. One of the caretakers, straight from Mughal casting.

Lots of portraits taken against the great architecture, including snatched profiles by James. Rocks have feelings, too!
