Good to know things about Fatehpur Sikri

Architectural Splendor

Fatehpur Sikri is famous for its magnificent Mughal architecture, which combines Persian, Timurid, and Indian influences. Emperor Akbar commissioned the city in 1569, and it served as the Mughal capital from 1571 to 1585. The architectural complex consists of palaces, mosques, courtyards, and other structures made of red sandstone.

Buland Darwaza

The Buland Darwaza, or "Gate of Magnificence," is one of Fatehpur Sikri's main entrances. It is one of the world's highest gateways, built in 1602 to commemorate Akbar's victory over Gujarat. The magnificent structure is famed for its ornate carvings and inscriptions, and it serves as a symbol of Mughal architectural splendour.

Jama Masjid

The Jama Masjid in Fatehpur Sikri is one of India's largest mosques. The mosque is an architectural wonder made of red sandstone with white marble ornamentation. The mosque's centre courtyard is expansive, and the prayer hall is embellished with exquisite architecture and calligraphy. The mosque, which was finished in 1571, is still in use today.

Diwan-i-Khas and Diwan-i-Aam

Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience) and Diwan-i-Aam (Hall of Public Audience) are two important structures in Fatehpur Sikri. The Diwan-i-Khas is a lovely pavilion with a central pillar that supports a capital with a flat platform on top. This hall is thought to have been utilised for secret consultations by Akbar. The Diwan-i-Aam, on the other hand, was a site where the emperor held public hearings and listened to regular people's complaints.
