Humanyu'sTomb: This was built by the emperor's grieving widow, Haji Begum, in 1565 AD. Made with red sandstone it marks the beginning of a new ornate architectural style that reached its peak in the Taj Mahal of Agra.
President House: Formerly the Vice-regal Lodge, the building is the presidential palace. It was completed in 1929 at a cost of 12,53,000 pound sterling and has 340 rooms.
Red Fort: The foundation of the Red Fort, so named after its red stone, was laid in 1618 when the Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, shifted to Delhi after ruling from Agra for 11 years. Rich silk from China and velvet from Turkey were used to drape the main halls of the palace when it was inaugurated in 1647.
