Fatehpur Sikri- The Abandoned Fort City

Sikri 4

Fatehpur Sikri is India’s famous and most magnificent ghost city that history knows about.

Commissioned in the 16th century, this fortified city served the Mughal Emperor Akbar as a capital for a total of 15 years.

Today we know Fatehpur Sikri as a World Heritage Site but there was a time that this place wasn’t the marvel it is today.

Long before the establishment of the Mughal Dynasty, this place was just as ordinary as the adjoining areas.

However, its role in establishing the dynasty, and Sheik Salim Christi predicting the birth of Akbar’s heir made Sikri a revered spot on the Indian travel map.

Fatehpur Sikri that will come to you on your Golden Triangle trip will be brimming with stories like these.

It will pamper your culture-loving heart while bringing to you the best amalgamation of Indian and Mughal styles of architecture.

To be honest, because of Fatehpur Sikri’s mammoth gate that’s about 50 m high and tall red sandstone walls, a trip here is like time travel.

And, within the sky-scraping walls, you’ll come across a plethora of palaces, towers, and noteworthy structure that deserves all eyes from travelers around the globe.

While strolling through its opulent corridors you’ll learn that every of this structure has been crafted to perfection.

And to be honest, we second that.

However, even hours spent here will not be enough to explore the expanse of this structure.

Securing a revered position on the travel list of Rajasthan, Abhaneri is one such village that’s blessed with architectural prowess.
