The magnificent deserted red sandstone city of Fatehpur Sikri with its forts, palaces and mosques is located 37 km from Agra. The city, designed as a tribute to the Sufi saint, Sheikh Salim Chisti, who had predicted the birth of Akbar's son and heir, was begun in 1571 and was abandoned just 15 years later due to a shortage of water. It remains pretty much as it was left all those years ago, now only home to a handful of vultures! One of our favourite places in India, highly recommended exploring enroute between Agra and Jaipur.
