An abandoned Mughlai capital near Agra, due to water problems after the huge city was built in the middle of nowhere. It has a ghost town feel to it with the quietly imposing red sandstone arches, walls, and Islamic-influenced minarets.
The huge archway leads to an indoor,covered plaza wherebmerchants displayed their wares and ladies of the royal family shopped without leaving the huge sandstone fort centuries ago. The fort holds the royal residences, throne room, audience halls, stunning gardens and smaller summer palaces, and private, exquisite prayer chambers.
This is a civil war/WW I era coastal fortification. It is directly across the channel from Fort Baldwin, where they found the location of the original Popham Colony.
