Fatehpur Sikri

Fatehpur Sikri lies 40kms from Agra on the road to Jaipur and is certainly worth stopping off at. It was the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1571 to 1585 during the reign of Akbar. It was built when a Sufi saint from the area predicted the birth of an heir, and when the prophecy came true, he constructed this vast city. The city was adandoned after his death, as many said it suffered from water shortages, and what you see largely remains very much in tact, almost like a ghost city that time forgot about.
