by Chirag Anand from India

FATEHPUR SIKRI
Fatehpur Sikri is a small city in northern India, just west of Agra, founded by a 16th-century Mughal emperor. Red sandstone buildings cluster at its center. The entrance gate of this place is called Buland Darwaza it’s high is 40 meters. There is a Tomb of Salim Chishti which is a Darga. Here lots of people tie threads and make wishes and many of them have said that thier wishes became true. This place was build by Akbar The Great. This area has its own beauty.
AKBAR’S TOMB :
Akbar’s tomb is the tomb of the Mughalemperor, Akbar and an important Mughal  architectural masterpiece.As per the traditional the real Tomb is just below the fake one. People are only allowed to visit the fake one. There is lot of wall painting design and stone cutting design on the wall of the Tomb.
TAJ MAHAL :
The Taj Mahal meaning “Crown of the Palace” is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna  river in the Indian city of Agra. It was build by Shah Jahan , to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal . The tomb is the centrepiece of a 17-hectare. The Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The construction includes the use of white marble. The Tomb is in the center of the entire building. The exterior decorations of the Taj Mahal are among the finest in Mughal architecture. As the surface area changes, the decorations are refined proportionally. The decorative elements were created by applying paint, stucco, stone inlays or carvings. Hence, the bodies of Mumtaz and Shah Jahan were put in a relatively plain crypt beneath the inner chamber with their faces turned right, towards Mecca.
