A perfect blending of Hindu and Muslim architecture , “Fatehpur Sikri “ was founded by the great Mughal emperor Akbar between 1569 to 1585 as a gesture towards the blessing he obtained from the saint Shaikh Salim Chishti lived in the Sikri city. It is located at a distance of 37 kilometer from Agra and constructed majorly out of Red sandstone. Though the city was abandoned later, however with the efforts of the Archaeological Survey of India, the ruins have been maintained and preserved as far as possible.
