About Agra

Agra falls within the Braj cultural region. The city was later ruled by the Mughal emperors Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan. It became a prominent centre of Sufism during this period.[20] Agra featured prominently in history during the Mughal era when it gained prominence as an important center of trade and commerce for textiles and readymade garments; it was also known for its fine muslin (khadi) products from 16th century onwards.[21] In 1737,[22][23][24] Nader Shah's forces sacked Agra[25][26] which triggered further migration to Delhi-Agra route that led to creation of large settlements around Delhi including those in Faridabad district such as Gurgaon where people originally migrated from eastern Uttar Pradesh villages like Baghpat (Babugarh), Ghaziabad(Pattan Kalan), Meerut etc., settled there after being displaced by Afghans who were pushed out by Sikhs under Ranjit Singh.
