Agra (hindi: आगरा; urdu: آگرہ) es una ciudad situada a orillas del río Yamuna, en el estado de Uttar Pradesh, en la India. Fue la capital del Imperio mogol entre 1556 y 1658.


La ciudad fue fundada entre 1501 y 1504 por Sikandar Lodi, sultán de Delhi, que la convirtió en su capital. El primer emperador mogol, Babur, se refugió en esta ciudad después de luchar con Lodi en 1526. Akbar la convirtió en la capital oficial del imperio en 1556.


Entre mediados del siglo XVI a mediados del siglo XVII, durante los reinados de Akbar, Jahangir y Sha Jahan, la ciudad tuvo su máximo apogeo y esplendor. Sha Jahan ordenó construir el Taj Mahal en 1631, Más adelante la capital del imperio se trasladó a Delhi.


Tras la caída del Imperio mogol, los Jats en 1761, los rajputs de Gwalior en 1764, los Sindhia en 1784 y los británicos en 1803 residieron en la ciudad. Durante la revuelta de los cipayos de 1857 se desarrollaron diversas batallas sangrientas en el fuerte de Agra.


En la actualidad (2005) la ciudad recibe millones de visitantes cada año para visitar el mausoleo del Taj Mahal. Agra sufre una intensa contaminación atmosférica que está poniendo en serio peligro la conservación del patrimonio de la ciudad.

I pity the poor immigrant

Whose strength is spent in vain

Whose heaven is like Ironsides

Whose tears are like rain

Who eats but is not satisfied

Who hears but does not see

Who falls in love with wealth itself

And turns his back on me.
