Probably the most splendid single sight in Agra Fort is Shah Jahan's richly inlaid throne room in the Diwan-i-Aam, the hall of public audience. Shah Jahan also built within the Agra Fort a hall for private audience, where he received ambassadors and other important personages, and an octagonal tower for the pleasure of his wife (that wife- Arjumand Bano Begum for whom he was later to build the world's most sumptuous tomb- Taj Mahal).

After visiting Agra Fort and having delicious lunch in a city restaurant, move on for visiting tomb of It-Mad-ud-Daula (known as Baby Taj) and tomb of Akbar at Sikandara. Later in the evening, having explored local market of Agra, return to Agra hotel for overnight stay.
