Lotus throne is carved out of a single stone. Simply amazing craftmaship. Worth click a pic with this throne. Hire a local guide from the entrance gate to explain you around. You will have to take a cng bus from the base to visit here.

This is part of Fatehpur Sikri Campus and deserves full attention due to the fact that it is carved out of a single stone. The carvings are something to die for and hence a must visit.

Part of the Fatehpur Sikri Complex this is worth a special mention as it is carved out of a single piece of sandstone and as such is quite an astonishing piece of architecture. A must see on any tour of this site.

Beautifully intricate carvings which seem like it must have taken years of work to accomplish. Great example of workmanship from the artisans hundreds of years ago.
