Fatehpur Sikri is one of the beautiful monuments of the world. The origin of Fatehpur Sikri reads like a fairy tale. When all else had failed, the Emperor Akbar came here in search of the famous Sufi mystic, Sheikh Salim Chishti, to ask the blessing of a son. His prayer was heard, and soon a son was born. In honor of the saint, Akbar named the new-born prince Salim and vowed to found a new city. And so Fatehpur Sikri, a wonderful new city rose on the craggy hills 40 kms from Agra. And for 16 short but excellent years it was the wonder of travelers from all over the world.

But the inner fortress is immaculately preserved. Its walls, palaces, baths, royal mint, courts and gardens still stand in splendid homage to a great visionary and builder. The heart of the palace complex however, is very much alive. For at the tomb of Sheikh Salim Chishti, a white marble cover set in the great courtyard of the Royal Mosque, pilgrims still come in thousands to offer flowers, tie a thread in the latticed screens, and to pray for the gift of a son.

The Main Attractions of Uttar Pradesh Fatehpur Sikri Diwani-i-Am, Diwani-i-Khas, Ankh Michauli, Friday Mosque, Jodhabai's Palace, Salim Chisti's Mausoleum and the Everlasting Glory of Fatehpur Sikri.

As you enter the Ankh Michauli (Closed Eyes) porch, you realize that Akbar could be as flippant as he was thoughtful. Here the Mughal played 'blind man's buff' and indulged in playful trouble in the company of his harem. Friday Mosque was the largest of its kind in India at the time, measuring 168 metres by 144, with a huge inner courtyard. It was completely built four years. The Buland Darwaza or 'Sublime Gateway' was added later to honor Akbar's military conquest of Gujarat. Jodhabai's Palace is grandest of all palaces in Fatehpur Sikri, as she was his most favored wife and the mother of the crown prince. A trip to Fatehpur Sikri would be incomplete without visiting Salim Chisti's Mausoleum, the sage who played an important part in Akbar's life. The city of Uttar Pradesh Fatehpur Sikri is only 40 km from Agra city. It is connected with major Indian cities.
