Location Agra, Uttar Pradesh
Architectur Indo-Islamic Architecture
Built in 1571 - 1585
Built By Akbar

Fatephur Sikri About 37 km from the world famous city Agra is Fatehpur Sikri. Built between 1571 & 1585, the entire structure of Fatehpur Sikri was built in red sandstone.

The credit of the construction of Fathpur Sikri goes to the Mughal Emperor Akbar, who dreamt of making it his capital. Fathepur Sikri remained the capital of the Mughal Empire for just 10 years, after which it was abandoned due to the shortage of water. After this within 20 years, the Mughal capital was shifted to Lahore (now in Pakistan).

Also known as the Ghost City, today Fathpur Sikri has secured a place in the list of World Heritage Sites. This huge well-planned city reserves several old structures with of the efforts of the archaeological department.

One of the exceptional architectural wonders of the Mughal times, Fatehpur Sikri is fine amalgam of Indo-Islamic architecture. Even though the city is now in ruins, visiting it would be worthy of while in a trip to Agra.
