I also got some interesting pictures of some monkeys hanging around the marketplace looking for a free meal.
The below paragraph provide some of the history of the Fort & Palace.
On a seasonal island on the bank of the Betwa River, which is surrounded by a battlement wall, stands a huge palace-fort
The roof is crowned by eight large fluted domes, with smaller domes between them, connected by an ornamental balustrade. From the top of this Palace a view of all the temples having long tapering structures and other landmarks of the city can be viewed. The Jahangir Mahal is considered to be a singularly beautiful specimen of domestic Hindu architecture.
