Part of the sprawling palace complex. Fatehpur Sikri was built by the Emperor Akbar as a new capital of the Mughal Empire, but was occupied only from 1570 to 1586. Since Fatehpur Sikri was abandoned shortly after it was built (according to one theory, because of the lack of a sufficient water supply), it has never been attacked or ruined. It looks almost as if it had been deserted yesterday.
