Agra Red Fort was designed and built by the great Mughal ruler, Akbar, in about 1565 A.D.  It was initially built as a military establishment but later on his successors made many additions to the main structure.  Several Mahals, which were built afterwards, converted half of the structure into a magnificent palace. The Red Fort in Agra encompasses a radius of three kilometres and is bordered by a wall, which is 70 foot tall. Two walls made of red sandstone surround the fort. The Red Fort has four gates. The fort once contained many more buildings but just a few now remain. The most eminent of these is the Jahangiri Mahal; a multi-storied palace built by Akbar for his Begum, Jodha Bai.  Among the other important structures that still remain are the Mausam Burj, Diwan-i-khas and Shaha Burj.
