When Akbar won over Gujrat, he built an entranceway to the Fatehpur Sikri to commemorate his victory. He made sure the gateway, built with red sandstone and carved with black and white marbles, matched the grandness of his history. He named it Buland Darwaza, the door of Victory. The 15 storeyed tall arch is the highest gateway built till today in the world. The structure is inscribed with verses from Quran and Persian philosophical quotes. In Akbar's time, it was used by the commoners to enter the capital, Fatehpur Sikri.Tips to visit: Buland Darwaza is part of the section which does not need any ticket. But beware of touts who try to imposter as a travel guide and continue misguiding you. Politely ignore and enter without paying to anyone.If you would like to check it on my Instagram, please see below.
