Last Stop: Agra Fort

So here we are. It's the end of the road, man. The Taj was everything I wanted it to be and more, but the best was yet to come. India is the gift that keeps on giving! It was my last day of sightseeing. On this day, we found ourselves at the Agra Fort. I'm going to keep it 100-- I had never heard of this place until we were en route. Side note: India has the best restaurant names. Eating Meeting? Eat Something? Bruh. Y'all kill me.

Back to my CRIMINAL lack of knowledge! The Agra Fort is extraordinarily impressive and beautiful. Part fortress and part palace, it has been described as a "walled city". With so many different buildings in the complex, that sounds about right. It is enormous. It has all the elegance, opulence, and majesty of an imperial palace. It is fucking amazing. Like almost everywhere else in India, you really do get an aura of a bygone era here. Words cannot do it justice. I totally felt like an old school explorer, like Indiana Jones. I love this architecture. I love India. Most importantly, I love that I was able to capture all these pics. Hey memory card, you the real MVP. Here are a few pics of the grounds:
