I have been to Forts before but I haven't been in a fort this scale. According to wikipedia, it is at least 121 acres long. This one is particularly interesting as it served as a residence for the Mughal Emperors. Inside, you will find dance halls, baths, gardens and apartment halls for the royalties. The architecture is very interesting too.
- Come early as the queue builds up after lunch time.
- Be prepared to walk. As I mentioned, the queue is long and leg strength is needed to go around the area.
- Bring money if you are interested to buy souvenirs. There are at least 10 stalls selling everything Indian. :)
- Bring lots of water. I didn't see any store selling food or drinks. I am not sure if you are allowed to bring drinks though. There are some places that restricts bringing food like Taj Mahal.
