The Taj Mahal was constructed under the supervision of architects Abdul-Karim Ma’mur Khan, Makramat Khan and Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. It took 21 years for the Taj Mahal to be constructed.
The Agra Fort, also known as the Lal Qila or Red Fort, is situated on the banks of Yamuna River in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. The Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage and one of the best forts in India. Agra Fort was originally a brick fort known as Badalgarh, held by Raja Badal Singh, a Hindu Rajput king (1475 AD). Sikandar Lodi was the first Sultan of Delhi to shift his capital from Delhi to Agra. After Sikandar Lodi died in 1517, his son Ibrahim Lodi held the fort for 9 years until he was defeated and killed in the battle of Panipat in 1526. Several palaces, wells and a mosque were built in the fort during the Lodi period.
