Amazing buildings and decorations in red sandstone. Not many foreign tourists. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Agra to see the Taj Mahal. Biggest problem is getting there, the roads aren't nice. Get a guide, especially to keep touts and hawkers at bay outside the palace at the Jama Masjid.

The place was very nice. The main entrance was especially magnificent. The place was maintained relatively cleanly. But, please beware of the guides. They try to force themselves upon you. They literally stopped the auto and got into it. You actually do not need a guide. In-fact, the guides there waste your time. They give you incorrect information. For instance,... More

Beautiful place with interesting history. Unfortunately hired a guide who rushed us around the palace. Since found that his commentary was not accurate.Much better to wander around these beautiful buildings freely and d your own research into the history

We visited whilst on our way from Agra to Jaipur. This abandoned city must have been amazing back in 1586. It took the Emporer Akbar 8 years to build, but they only used it for 14 years due to the lack of water. It really is a must if you are travelling around this region

It is best known for historic palaces. And they do not disappoint. The worst experience was the harrowing ordeal we suffered at Fatehpur Sikhri. Such a beautiful place, rich in culture but to say the local guides harassed us, is an understatement.The moment we reached the place, they literally pounced on our vehicle, literally forcing us to employ them.There were...

Short visit during our recent Golden Triangle tour. This ancient city is a short way out of Agra and was built in the mid 16thC by the Mughal Emperor Akbar to be his new capital. The site is a walled city only partly excavated, and must have been a huge complex in its time. It contained palaces, temples, magnificent buildings,etc... More

The City of Victory was built by Akbar the Great was the capital of the Mughal Empire for only some 10 years. The lack of water lead to the abandonment of this architectural wonder city and the return of the Empire's capital to Agra. Knowing the history of this city will help appreciate its wonders.
