  • Wonderful structure built in those days in Fatepur Sikri. I made a day trip from Agra after Taj Mahal in Tuk tuk. It was well worth it. Very delicate and intricate work done. It was just great sitting...  more »

  • Totally beautiful, but one of the worst travel experiences ever. From the parking lot to the bus, constantly hounded by hawkers and unofficial guides. They do not allow outside guides. Then into an overcrowded bus for the 10 minute ride from parking to gate. Upon arrival, we were still bombarded, both inside and out by these unofficial guides. We could not go more than 5 minutes without being approached, sometimes rather aggressively. We finally cut our visit short when trying to get to the mosque, we were angrily yelled at by a guide because we refused to follow him. We saw no western tourists here, and can understand why. Even our driver said he had to watch what he said there for fear of retribution. While the site is breathtaking, until they clean up their act, it is better skipped.
  • Nice, but looking quite dirty with lot's of wastage trougwn by people's
  • BEST TIME TO VISIT;; One can visit the place on all days of the week, from 7:00 a.m. in the morning to 6:00 p.m. in the evening. There is no entry fee. It takes around two hours to see the complete structure. The best time to visit is from October to March. Winter begins in November and can be pleasant during the day time. Nights are quite chilly. Summer begins from March and can get really hot from the months of April to June.
  • Beautiful- was told by others to skip it; but the mosque was my favorite part of this stop.
  • It was a joy visiting this place. The mosque has three gates and is surrounded by four tall towers and two minarets. The architecture of this mosque is incredibly marvelous. The experience was ruined a little bit because of the salesmen. The items they offered were overpriced and varied from person to person. I won't recommend you to buy an item from here. Instead, look out for the local marketplaces.
