A Day trip to Fatehpur Sikri from Delhi


There are 4 things to see in Fatehpur Sikri fort complex  Buland Darwaza, Fatehpur Sikri Fort, Tomb of Salim Chishti, and the Panch Mahal.All these places are architectural marvels of that time.The paintings on the main fort structure are exceptional.Many movies like Pardes, mere brother ki dulhan etc were shot here.

The Dargah of salim chisti was the best thing after Buland Darwaza which is the highest in the world The magnificent size of the buland darwaza was eye catching ..there are about 100-150 stairs then the gigantic structure called Buland Darwaza. Akbar later built the fort here and Jahangir did the marble art on Salim Chisti Dargah .In salim chisti dargah one can pray and can tie a knot to make a wish.As Akbar also wished for a child here and his wish got fulfilled.Even today people make wishes here.
