Fatehpur Sikri is a small city located in the Agra district of Uttar Pradesh, India. It was established in the 16th century by the Mughal emperor Akbar and served as the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1571 to 1585. The city is known for its structural grandeur and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Fatehpur Sikri was built by Akbar to commemorate the birth of his son, Jahangir. The city was built employing a unique blend of Indian, Persian, and Islamic architectural styles and was planned to be an idealized city, with royal residences, open buildings, mosques, and gardens. The city was built on a rocky ridge, which made it easily defensible and had a complex water supply system.
