Sanjay Place Overview

Ranked 12 of 118 sightseeing in Agra

Until the Emergency rule in India during Indira Gandhi’s leadership, Sanjay Place was, in reality, a central jail. It was only in 1976 that Indira Gandhi’s son, Sanjay Gandhi saw to the shifting of the central jail to a new premises located outside the periphery of the city. The space vacated was then used to set up commercial complexes and named Sanjay Place, after Sanjay Gandhi who was very instrumental in the shift.
