Built by Akbar for his queen. Nice place must visit place. Beautiful to see . Everybody can visit family, friends, relatives couples.Service is good. Suitable for children also. You can reach by bus,bike,car, taxi or auto as per your convenience. Many people visit daily. It's nice to see people around and crowd visit is good too. People are nice and polite they help you with everything if you ask for it. Located in India. Transportation facility is good. You can reach this place by roadways. Next to bus stop. Easier to trace the location. Google maps helps in finding location accurately. If you turn on your GPS you can reach the place very accurately. Thank you
This is the spot on Fatehpur Sikri which you come to this city for. An aesthetically designed, lovely platform shaped edifice which is a sight for sore eyes. The building itself is a series of pillared halls, with intricate lattice work on the parapets. The topmost level sits like a gem on this monument. Whoever designed it, must have had very good tastes, and, also must really have had no concept of privacy (it's open from all sides). One wonders how did the kings and the queens of yore had any privacy here. But then they were kings!
