It was founded in 1569 AD,it took 15 years to construct ,was completed in 1584AD.
Fatehpur Sikri is now a World Heritage site.Because of water scarcity,later Akbar shifted his capital to Agra.First it was called Sikri,after Akbar victory at Gujara 1573,it was named as "Fateh pur Sikri" means a Victory town."
