Agra the former capital of Hindustan, is a city on the banks of the river Yamuna in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India. The city is mentioned in the epic Mahābhārata, where it was called Agrevaa ("the border of the forest"). Agra is, of course, the city of the Taj Mahal, a grieving emperor’s extravagant tribute to love, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Legend ascribes the founding of the city to Raja Badal Singh, a Sikarwar Rajput king (c. 1475), who’s fort, Badalgarh, stood on or near the site of the present fort.
