Day 2 :Drive to Fatehpur Sikri
Once a full fledged city , it is believed that it was abandoned some years post it was built , due to shortage of water and supplies. Now a World Heritage site this compact township is up on a hill connected only through local transport – one has to park one’s own vehicle downhill at a particular point. The Panch Mahal and the Buland Darwaza that enclose with in them the famous mazaar of saint chishti show case Mughal architecture brilliantly.The ever enthusiastic guide showed us the exact location from where anarkali escaped , instead of being buried alive in a wall – as the legend goes. phew!
Jodha bai palace : we had to visit this mahal , essentially because of the hype that the epic of a movie jodha akbar created.we did find some facts that really were nt how they appeared in the movie though , but then – who is contesting history or its depiction anyway
