UttarPradesh

Ghosts of the Mughal Era ———— A view of part of the palace complex at Fatehpur Sikri, located near Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. Built as a grand, planned capital in 1571 by the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great, it served as the Mughal capital only until 1585, and was completely abandoned in 1610. Pictured here are a stage (surrounded by water, for acoustics) which is said to have been built for the famous Hindustani singer Tansen; in the background is the Panch Mahal (or “Wind Palace”). In 1986 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. ———— #FatehpurSikri #Agra #India #Mughal #UttarPradesh #IncredibleIndia #UNESCOWorldHeritageSite #UttarPradeshTourism #Akbar #Tansen #IndiaTravelgram #Indiagram #architecture #lpfanphoto #UNESCO #WorldHeritageSite #LonelyPlanetIndia #lonelyplanet #TLPicks #IamATraveler #BBCTravel #LiveTravelChannel
