Continuing on our journey for another 2 hours, the Agra Yamuna Expressway takes us further to Agra , The land of the Taj Mahal. The city is vibrant with marble architecture , colours and historic beauty.
1.FatehPur Sikri : Situated 30 kms from Agra , the city of Fatehpur Sikri is a reminiscent of Akbar's architectural genius. The main tourist attraction of Fatehpur Sikri fort and Dargah of Salim Chisti cannot be missed. As you heads towards the laid back town , the rows of tress and stills of tribal art cannot be missed.
The Fatehpur fort ,built entirely of Red sandstone and decorated with carvings contains Jodha Bai's palace , Tansen's podium and Diwan-i-Aam.
A few seconds of walk will lead you to the monumental Buland Darwaza. The Buland Darwaza contains within its folds , the Jama Masjid and Dargah of Salim Chisti ; an architectural music in white marble. It is said that if one comes with the right intentions and prays to the sufi saint for a legit blessing and ties a thread on the wall with the promise of coming back to open the thread once the wish is fulfilled, it gets granted.
