Fatehpur Sikri, 40 km away, is a fort on an elevated rocky place. Here lived a Muslim saint, Shaikh Salim Chisti. Akbar yearned for a son and he believed that his Hindu wife gave birth to one (Jahangir) by the blessing of the saint. He named the son Salim in honour of the saint and began building a fort near the saint's dwelling. Akbar launched his martial expedition into Gujarat (1573) from here and returned victorious. Hence he named it Fatehpur (the Victory Town) and it is since called Fatehpur-Sikri.

Akbar lived here for fifteen years during which many buildings were added to the fort. When he left, it grew desolate and soon became a totally abandoned citadel, almost a phantom town, to be raised to a new status in our time, a place of great tourist attraction. The Diwan-i-Aain or the Hall of Public Audience; the Diwan-i-Khas with a curiously and brilliantly carved octagonal column; Khaas Mahal, Akbar's private apartment; Panch Mahal, a five-storeyed building, the upper storeys diminishing in dimension; Mariam's Palace, an edifice once profusely decorated with gold ornaments, being the residence of Akbar's Rajput queen; Hawa Mahal, a breezy building of terraces meant for the ladies; Birbal Palace, built by Akbar's friend and minister Raja Birbal, Jarna Masjid; Shaikh Salim Chishti's Tomb built in pure white marble; Buland Darwaja, the largest gateway in India (176 feet high from the ground and 134 feet from its platform), built of marble and sandstone in remarkable harmony, and a number of other objects can be seen in this fort.
