Nearly 3 km away from the great Taj, there is the Agra Fort by the river Yamuna. This well fortified fort is nearly 2 km in length with a single entrance Amar Singh Gate for tourists . There are a host of marvellous spots of historical as well as architectural importance like Jahangir Mahal, Dewani Aam, Dewani Khas, Sish Mahal etc. A careful scrutiny calls for at least four hours. A memorial called Itmad-ud-dullah is nearly 1 km away from the Agra Fort. It bears brilliant stamps of craftsmanship.. Nearly 3 km away from the Agra Fort you can visit Rambagh garden founded by Babur. Dayal Bagh is worth visiting. There is Swami bagh Mandir. The place is also known as the Garden of the Supreme Lord. Sikandra is nearly 10 km away from the Taj. For visitors, the play should not go unvisited. The Emperor Akbar is lying here. Your visit to Agra will remain incomplete if you miss Fatepur Sikkri, nearly 36 km from Agra proper. To visit Fateper Sikri you must have at least three hours in your schedule.
