  Fountain System at Fatehpur Sikri
by atufft
 
 

As in the palaces at Agra and Delhi, the Mogul architecture at Fatehpur Sikri included an air-conditioning system that involved flowing water. In this image, note the fountain as it flows today. Until recently, this system was completely abandoned due to a decided lack of water that had been on cause for Fatehpur Sikri being abandoned as a capitol. Naturally, the architecture of the system provides for reflection pool, for the sky and beauty of the architecture, and with the bridges and walkways around it, provided the ruler a place for meditation.
