A Mughul folly of such exquisite beauty

This palace certainly has the wow factor a sixteenth century palace abandoned after 14 years. A real interesting story -go with a guide - and amazing archetecture

We visited Fatehpur Sikri in the afternoon (we went to the Taj Mahal in the morning). It is easy to say that it is more fascinating than the Taj, since the famous Taj is almost always underwhelming for most travellers. Well, this place can hold its own, and it is a totally different experience. :-) This place was a little... More

We visited this ancient city on our way to Agra. It is amazing. Dozens of beautifully preserved buildings and gardens totally isolated from modern civilization. Although there were a lot of tourists it never felt crowded. You have to leave your car or coach in rhe car park and use the government mini bus for a few rupees. There are... More

This is a five storey beautiful structure in the fort area. It can be easily identified among many structures in the same area. The way to reach at the top is closed. You can see stairs on the third floor from the ground.

This place is undoubtedly a gem for our country. The architectural genius of this monument is definitely a delightful thing to see. When your guide describe the historical importance of this place comes live in your imagination. The great architectural genius of that era is really wonderful. Visiting this place connects you with the royalty of the mughals and the... More

My guide made the story of the Mughal Empire at this UNESCO site come alive. Beautiful carvings and designs stand out in red sandstone buildings and terraces. Wandering around the area was delightful. This is a worthwhile stop to add to your travels if in Agra or traveling between Agra and Jaipur.

The Fatehpur Skiri complex is impressively old as it was built by Emperor Akbar in 1569 (500+ years!) and amazingly was abandoned only 15 years later due apparently to a lack of water. The complex houses the tomb of Salim Chisti, Panch Mahal and other palaces which are look in remarkable condition considering their age. The complex is big and... More

We went early on a weekday (travelled from Agra), the driver dropped us off at the carpark and we walked across the shop section to the bus-stop. In this section, a shop-owner started talking to us and asked us to come to his shop on return (he remembered us in our return and we felt obliged to visit; so if... More
