About Fatehpur Sikri

Another UNESCO World Heritage sites in Agra and located 39 km from the main city; Fatehpur Sikri is a city built entirely of red sandstone by Emperor Akbar. The city was abandoned by the Mughals in 1585 after it had served the ruling capital for almost ten years. Although water shortage is attributed as the probable cause of this abandonment, the real reason remains a mystery. The colossal city has some grand structures, the most prominent one being the imperial compound that is made up of royal palaces, harems, mosque, private quarters and other administration buildings. But what attracts a throng of visitors throughout the year to this city is one of the largest mosques in India, the Jama Masjid. Well-preserved till date, it is believed that if a person prays with immense sincerity, their wishes are granted. The more important buildings for visitors here include Buland Darwaza, Jama Masjid, the tomb of Salim Chishti, Diwan-e-Aam and Diwan-e-Khas, Ibadat Khana, Anup Talao, Mariam-uz-Zamani’s Palace, Naubat Khana, etc.
