Recommendation by Lemi

On the outskirts west of Agra City, Fatehpur Sikri (The City of Victory) was a complex of mosques and courts central to the Mughal Empire. Though Agra Fort was home to the crown, Fatehpur Sikri became its capital for ten years. Emperor Akbar built the city in 1571. The land was favored even by Akbar’s father and grandfather—Humayun and Babur, respectively—away from the bustle of newly taken Agra. The city incorporated Persian, Arabic, and Hindu influences as it was built, reflecting Emperor Akbar’s own character as leader. Visitors can see this for themselves, gazing at the pristine halls, palaces, and yards built in red sandstone.
