This is an octagonal tower located inside the Agra fort .. You can see the Taj Mahal and the Yamuna river from her which made it one of the best places in the fort .. The view is beautiful.. The structure in itself has intricate work

This is an octagonal tower located within the Agra Fort. It has a great view of Taj Mahal and Yamuna. One can still find a few mirrors on the ceiling and walls. Architecturally a very nice location in the fort.

This was the best part of Agra Fort. Nice views of the Taj Mahal and the white marble structure is very pretty. This is where the 5th Mughal emperor, the builder of the Taj, was imprisoned here by his own son for bankrupting the nation by building the mausoleum for his wife.
