Fatehpur Sikri, Uttar Pradesh 283110, India
An Abandoned CityLocated not too far from the ever-popular Taj Mahal, the city of Fatehpur Sikri is a UNESCO World Heritage site that was once the capital of the Mughal Empire. The quiet, deserted city is also a shining example of the Mughal architecture that reigned supreme during that time period and continues to be one of the most unique styles to date.
Roaming around this beautifully detailed city is an experience that one should not do without knowing the story of the emperor Akbar and his multiple wives. The history and stories bring what would otherwise be just an empty monument to life.
