The ancient city of Fatehpur Sikri was founded by Emperor Akbar as the capital of Mughal Empire in 1571. Akbar’s son Jahangir was born at the village of Sikri in 1569 and that year Akbar constructed a religious compound to commemorate Sheikh Salim who had predicted the birth.
Leaving Agra en route to our tiger safari in Ranthambore we stopped at a village to see local life before travelling on to the ancient fort at Fatehpur Sikri .
