"Powerful, defensive building that can also train units."—In-game description
The Agra Fort is a wonder in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that is unique to the Indians and can be built to advance into the next Age. It sends a shipment of Sepoys or Gurkhas when built and functions similarly to an European Fort.
Comparing the Agra Fort to an European Fort is a moot point, as it is inferior in every aspect, although due to its low Age requirement and durability when compared side by side with a Fortified Outpost, it becomes more clear where exactly it fits into the build tree in terms of strategic benefit. The Agra Fort is used almost exclusively in the Discovery Age to reach the Colonial Age, since at this point of a game it is most effective for map control or rush defense, dropping off in usefulness beyond this point due to its weaker stats compared to an actual Fort and dramatically larger cost.

"Near the gardens of the Taj Mahal stands the important sixteenth-century Mughal monument known as the Red Fort of Agra. This powerful fortress holds the imperial city of the Mughal rulers inside its 1.5-mile long red sandstone walls. It comprises many palaces, such as the Jahangir Palace and the Khas Mahal, built by Shah Jahan; audience halls, such as the Diwan-i-Khas; and two very beautiful mosques."
