This is a very interesting and nice place. Especially if you see it in combination with Agra Fort. It's a beautiful palace with a very interesting history. We came with a guide who gave the experience an extra dimension, but I wish we had used more time to just walk around and experience it. It's usually taken as a stop... More

We stopped at Fatehpur Sikri on our way from Agra to Jaipur and it's another wonderful example of the beautiful buildings in India. There was some restoration work going on while we were there and it was fascinating to see the workmen working. Very primitive tools but such beautiful work.

For the 1st time visited any historic site, it was amazing to know the facts about the grt leader Akabar and his day to day life via the exp guide we hired at site who charged just 300 bucks. We took almost 3 hours to see through this site but it's worth

Beautiful place to visit, lost to see and learn. Very clean! Our family had a wonderful time learning the history of Fatehpur Skri. The guides are very knowledgeable and speak excellent English.

Kind of like the agra fort. But the location is too far away. Difficult to see it all in one day but it was worth it.

The moment we reached there we are surprised. to the beauty of the palace.The very large area covered and conquered by the kings and spend their time in building such beautiful palaces were excellent.Beauty lies not only in the heart but also in the hands of those architects who made an wonderful job.Compared to their brilliance todays architects cannot stand...

A strong and rich historically important place with splendid workmanship to see. Calm, serene Dargah to worship and ask for blessings. Though the place is neglected and not properly maintained.

I will never get tired of visiting this place. It is mesmerizing. Deep rooted in Indian history and a piece of architectural wonder. I have now been here more than four times and yet the visit seems incomplete. I last visit was in summer of 2014 with family. Please ensure you get a guide when you visit this place. If... More

Not to be missed, this is a gem among jewels. It's true that there are many forts and palaces in India. This is a special place, away from the hustle and bustle, with all the regal splendor of a grand palace. Not to be missed.
