The best of art and architecture was seen in the 16th and 17th century, in the form of some of the most beautiful examples of architectural style of the Mughals. Founded in the year 1579, Fathepur Sikri or the City of Victory remained the capital city of ruler Akbar for 10 years. Rich culture of the Mughal era is reflected here.
This city was build to honour a Sufi saint, S.S.Chishti and is surrounded by walls from three sides and on the fourth side is the lake. The Buland Darwaza is considered as the largest gateway to this city. Various royal palaces, utility buildings, mosques and private quarters lie in this city. A glimpse of Jain and Hindu architecture is also reflected through the beautifully crafted buildings.
A magnificent view of various monuments, which were built inside the city, reflects the marvellous artistic sense of the artists who built them.
