Agra is an ancient city. It is believed that Agra was known as Agraban during the days of Mahabartha and was a part of the holy Brijbhumi (hometown of lord Krishna). While the other historians believe that Maharaja Ugersen founded it. And sources prior to this have also reffered Agra as Arya Griha- abode of the Aryans.
More recently the Indian history outlines the origins of Agra to 1475 AD the reign of Kshatriya hero Badal Singh. Later Sikandar lodi set base in Agra in 1492 AD and inhabited a city Sikandarabad at a distance of 8 km from Agra. Thus Agra as it is known today is believed to be established by Sikandar Lodhi of Lodhi dynasty; Delhi sultanate. The Persian ruler Babar defeated the last king of lodi dynasty, Ibrahim Lodhi and established the mighty Mughal empire in Agra, India. In 16 and 17th centuries during Mughal rule Agra was the Mughal capital of India.
