Fatehpur Sikri is a historic town located near Agra in the state of Uttar Pradesh. It was built by the famous Mughal Emperor Akbar as the capital of his empire. The city was abandoned later due to water shortage and fear of invasion by the nearby Rajput states. Nevertheless, the site is one of the best specimens of the Mughal Architecture, which crosses several styles from Indian and Persian styles.
