The city finds mention in the epic Mahabharata when it was called the Agrabana or paradise.The modern city was founded by Badal Singh in 1475 while Sikandar Lodhi made Agra his capital city. Lodhis where defeated by Babur to capture the city situated on the banks of River Yamuna and thus, the long association of Mughals with Agra started. The Mughal's love for architecture translated into beautiful monuments such as Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri and Sikandra. These monuments were built in the contemporary Mughal style. The glory of Agra was at its peak during the reign of Akbar, Jehangir and Shah Jahan. Akbar made it the center of art, culture, commerce and learning and Shah Jahan saw it in full bloom. Mughlai cuisine and the skilled craftsmen can still be seen in the narrow lanes of the city as a reminiscent of the lost times.

This immense fort and palace were the seat of power for four generations of Moghul emperors; they ruled all of northern India from the early 16th century until the consolidation by British colonial rule in the early 1800s.
