Agra fort is built in a triangular form and covers an overall area of about 1.5 miles. Of the four gates, the Amar Singh Gate to the south is the only one gate which is open to the visitors. The Jahangir Mahal
with its fretwork is the largest private residency within the
fort. To the south of Jahangir Mahal are the ruins of the Akbari Mahal, guilded
by a pillared hall. The Nagina Mosque lies to the left of the throne room. Beneath this existed the Meena
Bazar, from where the ladies of the house watch the merchants who display their silks, brocades and jewellery in the courtyard below. At the Chittor Gates, trophies of Akbar's captures of a Rajput fortress in 1657 are displayed. Towards the riverside is the Diwan-e-Khas, built by Shah Jahan
in 1637. Some various other buildings in the fort are the Khas
Mahal, the Golden pavilions, Anguri Bagh, Sheesh Mahal, the legendary Gates of Somnath
and Jami Masjid.
