Agra Fort


A couple of pictures of the Agra Fort (like the Amber Fort in Jaipur, it's more of a palace than a stockade, though fortified with huge sandstone ramparts) and then I think I'm finally done with Agra.

These geometric gardens mimic the patterns in Indian carpets. The gardens at the Taj Mahal unfortunately were replaced by the English with something more to their taste, but I imagine there would have been a lot of this.
