Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti, Fatehpur Sikri
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
One of the most highly regarded examples of Mughal architecture in the country, Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti serves as the final resting place of the Sufi saint. Devotees visit the graceful 16th-century tomb to request blessings from the saint, tying a signifying thread to the marble screens that enclose the building so their wishes will not be forgotten. Admire the intricately carved edifice, adorned with arabesques and selections from the Koran, and the plinth's yellow and black mosaics. Note that women will have to wear a scarf on their head to enter, and all visitors must remove their shoes. Wear socks so as not to burn your feet on the sun scorched ground. Put Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti into our Fatehpur Sikri family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
