A group of four friends who were initially planning to go to Bhangarh and later changed their plan to go to sariska finally ended up going to Fatehpur Sikri .I wonder how great is our planning department because what we plan initially would never ever been converted into reality.Finally we all four of us embarked our journey to Fatehpur Sikri in Maruti Ritz(“Live the moment”).
A city that was once the proud capital of the Mughal Empire in the 16th century, Fatehpur Sikri now stands deserted as a well preserved ghost town. It was abandoned by its occupants after only 15 years due to insufficient water supply.
Fatehpur Sikri was established by Emperor Akbar from the twin villages of Fatehpur and Sikri as tribute to famous Sufi saint, Sheikh Salim Chishti. The saint accurately predicted the birth of Emperor Akbar’s much longed for son.
