Fatehpur Sikri Overview
Fatehpur Sikri is the first capital of the great Mughal Empire, located in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The archeological site is a UNESCO World Heritage inscripted in the year 1986.
This is a magnificent fortified ghost city, about 40 km west of Agra. It was the Mughal Empire's capital between 1571 and 1581, during the reign of Akbar. Although brilliant and unusual from an architactual point of view, the city was erected in an area that sufferd from water shortages and that's why it has been abandoned.
