This has been my favourite place so far in India. I haven’t heard of this but as we had a driver from New Delhi to Agra we decided to visit. The grounds are well kept and the buildings were were stunning.

Akbar's mausoleum is a impressive building within a wonderful courtyard with many blackbucks and other antelopes/deers. Already the gateway is stunning. I loved the calm atmosphere there as this place is less crowed than other touristical highlights in Agra.

Me and my friend from UK visited this place early in the day and found it a real peaceful place. Found deer roaming freely in the grounds and good maintained parks were really wonderful.
