Fatehpur Sikri
Built by Emperor Akbar in the 1570s, the UNESCO-listed Fatehpur Sikri—which means “City of Victory”—was the capital of the Mughal Empire for about 10 years. Today, a well-preserved collection of monuments, palaces, temples, and mosques remains, in a uniform red sandstone architectural style.

The Basics
Surrounded by walls, the ancient city sits atop a rocky ridge. Although Akbar was a Muslim ruler, Fatehpur Sikri’s architectural style reflects both Islamic and Hindu elements. Despite its grandeur, the city was abandoned by the early 17th century. People still live outside the old walls. 

Fatehpur Sikri can be visited independently, but most travelers go on some kind of guided tour—a convenient way of learning about the history of the city while being transported to and from it. Some excursions combine visits to Fatehpur Sikri, Agra, and Jaipur.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Indians, SAARC country nationals, and other foreigners pay different entry fees.
  • Licensed guides can be found near the ticket counter, and display their credentials. Beware of overly pushy, unqualified guides wanting to take you around for a hefty fee.
  • Bottled water is allowed inside Fatehpur Sikri, but food and cigarettes aren’t.

How to Get There
Fatehpur Sikri is about 23 miles (37 kilometers) west of Agra, on the main Jaipur-to-Agra highway. If you’re on a guided tour that includes Jaipur and Agra on the itinerary, it’s likely you’ll stop at Fatehpur Sikri. If traveling on your own, arrange a day trip from Agra to Fatehpur Sikri, or hire a taxi and driver for the day. You can also get there by train, as Fatehpur Sikri has a small railway station.

When to Get There
Fatehpur Sikri is open from sunrise to sunset. Early or late in the day is a nice time to go—the air is cooler, the crowds thinner, and the light on the red sandstone attractive. If you’re in India at any time other than midwinter (December and January), avoid visiting in the heat of the day, as much of the complex is exposed.

Visit Bharatpur
Many travelers explore Fatehpur Sikri, but miss the nearby city of Bharatpur, 14 miles (23 kilometers) away. Just over the state border in Rajasthan, the town is a gateway to the UNESCO-listed Keoladeo National Park and has a good museum inside Lohagarh Fort, surrounded by a moat.

Taj Mahal Day Tour with Keoladeo National Park Bharatpur

Taj Mahal Day Tour with Keoladeo National Park Bharatpur

At Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary birds migrate in huge flocks together, roam together and pose for beautiful photographs together. Rechristened as Keoladeo National Park or Keoladeo Ghana National Park, Bharatpur National Park is a UNESCO-recognized World Heritage located in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. Its proximity to the capital makes it one of the popular weekend getaways from Delhi during autumn and winters. Housing more than 366 species of birds, 379 species of plants, and around 30 mammals, the new name of the sanctuary is derived from the temple of Keoladeo, dedicated to Lord Shiva. Bird family in the park includes hundreds of aquatic birds that are natives of Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, China, and Siberia. These birds come to India during winter, and that’s what makes Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary an interesting getaway for bird watchers and wildlife photographers.
