History of Agra

The history of Agra is without doubt attention-grabbing. It puts great emphasis on many hidden facts which are not only interesting but are also informative. Such as the city Agra is beautifully hinted in the popular Hindu epic Mahabharata as the wooded area of Agraban sharing its immediacy to Mathura. Additionally, the credit of establishing Agra city in year 1475 actually goes to Badal Singh but it was first declared as the capital city by the then ruler Sikandar Lodhi. Subsequently, Babur beaten the Lodhis to imprison Agra city located on the cache of River Yamuna and therefore, the extended relationship of Mughals with Agra initiated.

The ear-catching history of Agra city also accentuates that as the majestic Mughals were the true connoisseurs of art, culture and tradition so they decided to build many enthralling masterpieces of architecture such as Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, Sikandra and Agra Fort. The pomp and grandeur of Agra was at zenith all through the supremacy of Jahangir, Akbar, and Shah Jahan. As on one end Akbar composed Agra city as the tremendous hub of art, culture, learning, and commerce, Shah Jahan on the other end saw it in full blossom. If truth be told, it is also whispered that it was only Akbar who is held responsible of giving Agra a complete contemporary silhouette in year 1558 and was identified as Akbarabad. A good number of the edifices belong to the age between mid-16th century and 17th century and were of unbeatable excellence. These commemorative plaques of Mughals were truly formed in the current Mughal style and some delectable Mughlai cuisines and the expert craftsmen can still be found in the narrow lanes of Agra as a redolent of the gone astray eras.
