  Fatehpur Sikri
by duke0123

A nice place to visit is Fatehpur Sikri, the ghost town of Rajasthan.

Fatehpur Sikri is a desolated city. The buildings, partially destroyed but most of them in very good condition, are built of red sandstone.

There are several stories why Fatehpur Sikri was left but it's not quite clear which is the real story.

The best thing to do is walk around in this deserted city and enjoy the beauty of the buildings.

Directions: Fatehpur Sikri is about 37 km from Agra and can be reached by bus or taxi.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
