The beauty of the red sand stone charms you the moment you step within the
vicinity of the Fatehpur Sikri while on a Tour to Uttar Pradesh. Elegance
personified, the entirety of the complex of Fatehpur Sikri is adorned with some
of the finest elements of the reign of the Mughals. Characteristic in its
grandeur, which corresponds to the regality of the Mughals, the entirety of
Fatehpur Sikri is a definite must include if you are planning a tour to Uttar
Pradesh. Of the Monuments in Fatehpur Sikri, perhaps one of the most notable is
the Palace of Jodha Bai, Fatehpur Sikri.
Built as a form of homage to the memory of the memory of the great Sufi saint,
Sheikh Salim Chisti, who, it is said, blessed the emperor with an heir to the
Mughal throne in India, who was to be later known as Jahangir, Fatehpur Sikri
was built in 1571 and stood as the capital of the Mughal empire till the year
1585 when it was abandoned due to what, today is guessed by historians to be a
severe water shortage. Declared recently as one of the prestigious World
Heritage Monuments by UNESCO, Fatehpur Sikri is today one of the most popular
tourist destinations while on a trip to Uttar Pradesh.
The palace of Jodha Bai or the Rajput queen of Emperor Akbar, the Palace of Jodha
Bai in Fatehpur Sikri is one of the most charming examples of the amalgamation
of the apparently opposing architectural styles of the Rajputs and the Mughals.
The palace, which is located on the eastern side of the entirety of the fort,
was used, according to modern historians as a residence for the various queens
of Akbar as well as the other members of the harem. Corresponding to the style
used in Hindu architecture, the main palace has a courtyard, around which the
entirety of the palace is built. The living quarters are all built after keeping
the courtyard as the center of the complex. Added to the brilliance of the red
sandstone are the turquoise bricks, which are used on the roofs of the
