In the 16th century Fatehpur Sikri was built close to Agra, a city that, just 14 years later, was abandoned due to lack of water. Despite centuries of abandonment (or perhaps even because of that) the city has remained well preserved, and today it is a curious visit for most of those heading to the Taj Mahal.
In 1986 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, due to the wealth of monuments concentrated in a limited space of time.
Highlights of Fatehpur Sikri:
The whole complex is a monument, where the guides mention details with names like Jama Mosque, Jodha Bai’s Palace, Buland Darwaza, and Salim Chisti’s tomb and others.
