I think that many people visit Agra just to see the Taj Mahal so anything esle is an anti-climax. However, enjoy the Fort for what it is and there is plenty to see and learn about which really does add to the overall enjoyment of a once only trip, for most, to Agra.
Don't compare it with what you saw and the Taj and just take in the experience.

When you consider that this fort was built in the 1400s and look at the complexity of the stone work and the sheer size of the fort you kust have to wonder how this was built with hand tools alone, there was no machinery just people. Amazing.

It is a great place but may turn out very tiring.......has beautiful landscapes, we went there on a sunny day which left us tiered & irritated by the end.......good to go once .....lot of crowd there & the dhabas outside may turn out to be very costly & unhygenic. Overall- good!!!

A wonderful and interesting destination best seen with an Indian government approved guide who can interpret the site for you.

What I loved most about this place was that I went early (8am-ish) and it was basically empty. Got to take tons of pictures and not be worried about people getting in my shots or embarrassed when getting myself in all the random shots on timer... ;-) Be aware though, here like everywhere in Agra, they don't allow tripods, even small gorillapods, and when I used one the security guard watched me use it, then when I put it away, he asked me to come with him, told me it was illegal to use it, and to pay him money. I got angry, he got angry, then he tried to take me to his office at which point I just said "whatever, sorry" and walked away and he didn't bother following me. If the same happens to you, just walk away into a crowd of people if possible. Otherwise, enjoy the place!
