These all are in 1 place only including panch mahal, buland darwaja , Diwan e khas,masjid,mahal etc fatehpur sikri fort. 50 rs ticket for panch mahal and other is free.30 rs return ticket from parking by state bus to fort. Forcefully make u park private car from other state, u say going to relatives. Go ahead and 5 min climb or use auto. Min 2-3 hrs,it's huge. Left and right both sides are there so you return back to common.

Fatehpur Sikri is amazing as a whole
Akbar, the third Mughal emperor, was the master of this city, hidden for hundreds of years
Jodh Bai Palace has been built for the favorite Empress of Akbar Emperor, and it's the biggest of his wives residences
a masterpiece in sandstone, a fusion of Hindu and Persian architecture

Just as the Taj Mahal is a symbol of the love between Shah Jahan and his wife, so Jodha Bai's Palace is the symbol of the love between the Great Akbar and his Rajput Hindu wife Mariam-uz-Zamani. She gave him his first surviving son, who was later called Jahangir and succeeded him as the 4th Mughal Emperor.
It is the largest and most magnificent palace ; and it illustrates how the Muslim ruler respected his favourite wife, because it contains a Hindu temple and is filled with depictions of swans, elephants, Hindu motifs, even pictures of Lord Krishna (things that are definitively haram under Sharia Law).
In very good condition, I found this structure the highlight in Fatehpur Sikri.

THIS is one of the largest palaces in the abandoned Mughal town of Fatehpursikri.
It was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Akbar for his favourite wife, Mariam-uz-Zamani, commonly known as "Jodha bai".
The red sandstone structure is hailed as a masterpiece fusion of Hindu and Persian architecture.
When I toured it I was constantly distracted by intricately carved stonework and the impression that if I didn't pay strict attention I would miss some other wonder.
A must visit for anyone coming to Fatehpursikri.

This palace inside Fatehpur Sikri is named after the principal wife of the Emperor Akbar, and the building where the wifes of Akbar were housed. This building is the largest of all the palaces inside the complex. It’s roughly a large courtyard surrounded by the living quarters designed in a very distinctive style of Indo-Islamic architecture including the multi level pavilions. One of the more interesting structures in the complex.

Set around an enormous courtyard, this palace was the one-time courtyard of Emperor Akbar’s Hindu wife. It features traditional Indian columns, Islamic cupolas and Persian roof tiles.

This is part of the buildings inside the Fatehpur Sikri complex. It is said to have been built for one of his wife's who was Hindu and who had a special place in Akbar's life. Their life and love was immortalised in the Bollywood movie Jodha Akbar. She was the mother of Jahangir the next Mughal emperor after Akbar and the grand mother of Shah Jahan, the guy who built the Taj Mahal.
The palace is a big complex and is worth taking time to wander through the rooms to see the grandeur and imagine what it would have been like.
