  • Along the way from Jaipur to Agra is Fatehpur Sikri the beautiful city built by Akbar and later abandoned. Almost perfectly preserved, this city returns to the full vision of Mughal lifestyle at the height of their power. The town was planned according to principles Persians, but built and decorated according to Indian models who develop eclectic and elegant. The city can be divided into two parts: the area of the Palace and mosque.

  • After seeing the Thaj Mahal do not expect that you have only begun to see things more beautiful than the Rajastan can give you. Fatepur Sikri is an old capital city of the Principality of Nawab then abandoned because of drought. Red sandstone palaces decorated with light columns that make architectural structures.

  • A Historical Place. This mahal is a Part of Jodha Mahal. Whenever you visit Fatehpur Sikri must go for it too.
  • Panch mahal is one of the beautiful mahals in Sikri Fort. It looks so beautiful when the sun goes behind it during sunset.
