Day 1

Fatehpur Sikri (known as Ghost town) is located 240Km far from Delhi and will take 4-5 hours. And also it is 35 km from Agra so if you are planing to visit Taj Mahal;then make sure you are also visiting this Akbar's Place.

In 1569, Akbar had visited here to meet Saint Salim Chisthi. Salim Chisthi correctly foretold that Akbar's wish for an heir would be gratified with the birth of a son. Akbar named his child ' Salim' and moved to Sikri. He made it his capital. He built a mosque with a large beautiful southern gate to enter the mosque ( known as Buland Darwaza). He also built three palaces for his wives : one hindu,one muslim and one christian. But this capital was abandoned due to inadequate supply of water in Fatehpur Sikri. This town was designated a UNESCO heritage site in 1986.

1) Buland Darwaza
