Agra and Fatehpur Sikri, both former Mughal capitals, are situated at the distance of 35 kms. Agra situated on the banks of River Yamuna is widely known as the home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The entire city is studded with buildings of Mughal era and hence provides an insight about the lifestyle and culture of the same era. Agra is usually talked about due to the symbol of eternal love- the Taj Mahal. But apart from Taj, it has many notable attractions like the massive Agra fort constructed in red sandstone portraying the charm of medieval architecture. The Tomb of Itimad ud Daula, splendid Mehtab Bagh and Akbar’s Mausoleum are the other places that attract tourists. Fatehpur Sikri, a red sandstone city, also showcases the advancement of medieval masonry with its exquisite buildings. The city served as the capital of Mughal Empire from 1571 to 1585 and was abandoned due to scarcity of water. The mighty Buland Darwaza, Panch Mahal and Tomb of Salim Chisty are the places worth visiting in the town. The cities are best preserved examples of Mughal architecture in India.
