#7 Agra

Agra 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 Mahabharata, where it was called Agrevana ("the border of the forest"). Legend ascribes the founding of the city to Raja Badal Singh, a Sikarwar Rajput king (c. 1475), whose fort, Badalgarh, stood on or near the site of the present fort.
