Palace Viewpoint

Fatepur Sikri was founded as the capital of the Mughal Empire in 1571 by Emperor Akbar. It served this role from 1571 to 1585, when Akbar abandoned it due to a campaign in Punjab and it was later completely abandoned in 1610. This is a view of the palace courtyard and Diwan-i-Khas.
