  • Description :
    Agra and its adjoining areas are home to some of the finest examples of Mughal architecture, showcasing one of the most brilliant phases of Indian history. One of these is the Fatehpur Sikri, one of the best examples of Mughal planning and architecture. Once the political capital of Akbar, arguably the greatest Mughal emperor, Fatehpur Sikri was in operation from 1571 to1585. Today a world heritage site, this erstwhile capital of the Mughals is a historian's delight and must-see for all visitors to the area. Fatehpur Sikri was instrumental in being one of the places along with Agra and the Red Fort. The fort was built as a tribute to the great Sufi Saint Sheikh Salim Chishti, with whose blessing Prince Salim was born, Akbar's descendent who was destined to grow up to become the next Mughal emperor Jahangir.
