Fatehpur Sikri Tourism & Travel Guide

A World Heritage Site, Fatehpur Sikri is perhaps the best way you can spend your weekend if you are around Agra or Delhi. The fortified city is a great place for history buffs, photographers and explorers. Though two days here may be a bit much, you can easily spend a day here exploring its many treasures. Do visit Panch Mahal and the Buland Darwaza located within the city. If you'd like to hire a tour guide, do make sure you have a conversation with him before hand, lest you are pulled into a tour without any information. If possible, do also speak to locals there, just in case there are a few spots you can explore besides the popular sightseeing spots. For foodies, the Lake View Resort is a great option to enjoy an afternoon amidst nature and delicious food. Should you have more time on your hands, do also visit Sikri and the lively bazaar below Fatehpur Sikri. Not only does the bazaar make one happy with rows and rows of lovely shops, it reminds one of Rajasthan's colourful marketplaces. Fatehpur Sikri is around 40km from Agra and can be reached by buses, taxis and train.
Best time to visit Fatehpur Sikri is from October to March

This is a city as well as fort in the extending part of Lucknow. This has its mentions as 'Saik' even in the Mahabharata which makes it very clear that this city existed even during the pre- historic Era. The city was further beautified by the Mughal rulers and the Fatehpur Sikri along with Buland Darwaza is an incomparable monument gifted by Mughal Rulers, especially Emperor Akbar. The fort complex is spread over a huge area and consists of mosque, the Dargah of Salim Salim Chisti, the palaces and so many more. The red sandstone structures with a few made of white marble makes it an awesome composition. The lattice work, jharokhas, pillars and facades are intricately carved. Salim Chisti Dargah was a mark of honor by Emperor Akbar to the great Sufi Saint Sheikh Salim Chisti whom he followed whole heartedly.
