Fatehpur Sikri Complex

Akbar (1556-1605), grandson of Babur, shifted his residence and court from Agra to Sikri, for a period of 13 years, from 1572 to 1585 to honour the Sufi Saint Sheikh Salim Chishti, who resided here (in a cavern on . the ridge). Akbar revered him very much as the Saint had blessed him with a son, who was named Salim, in 1569. Akbar gave it the name of Fathabad, which in later days came to be known as "Fatehpur Sikri".
