These magnificent original wall and ceiling frescos have been remarkably well preserved. They have withstood the test of time. One can only imagine how exquisite they must have appeared before this city was abandoned. Muslim faith forbids the portrayal of faces- because of this, the ornamentation of Mughal architecture has been perfected. Patterns were inlaid with precious stones and handpainted, often with koranic scriptures. Fatepur Sikri shows fine examples of this ornamentation.
