JAMI MASJID (Fatehpur Sikri) -
Undoubtedly, this was a surprise to us.

Frankly, I dreaded going into here because we were on our way to Agra, plus we had our documents & cash on us.
By the look of the people outside loitering, I didn't think it was a good idea at all.
But still, we went ahead & was somewhat drawn in by the remarkable architecture.

Remember to have a long skirt or pants whenever you visit the mosque.
That's one of the protocol of mosque-going.

The impressive JAMI MASJID / JAMA MASJID as some called it was just a short walk from the "palace" & the main highlight is the tomb of the Sufi mystic, Salim Chishti.
It was said that if a childless woman makes a wish at his tomb, a miracle will manifest!
