  1. Great place. I spoke with many people and they decided not to come because Taj Mahal for them was enough! Big mistake from my point of view! For some details I printed the page of a link that I found on wikipedia pretty useful even though the pictures are not the best http://www.travelinput.com/fatehpur-sikri-palaces-and-pavilions-all-you-need-to-know/

  2. people who dont know,just want to inform them that the sufi saint or whatever is called,in islamic language, was well renowned for the power he was having with him during that time,he was a holy (pak) soul,and people of that time period was worshiping (bandgi) some one very near to Allah,and it has been not taken care by the emperor those who have ruled ever there,otherwise its importance in not less than Ajmer sherrif.

  3. Good article but its not slaim chisti. His name was Salim Chisti.

    Good information

  5. Hi! You have the talent,work on it. I am sure you can write much better than this.

  6. Name Sikri is after Sikar. The person who lived there were called Sikarwar. It means belong to Sikar(Sikar Wale). It true they were fled away by Akbar after seventh war. They were divided in main two branches one of them is in Murena MP and second in Western Bihar and Western UP. Remaining runawy nearby village of Agra like largest Village of India Ayeila, Kuberpur, Tanora Noorpur and Kolara. Still they are Sikarwar.

  7. Who know the early life of Shaikh Salim Chisti? Pl Share as my G Father told me he was Hindu and changed his religion due to some circumastances.

  8. I want history of Fatehpur sikari before mugals, can you tell me the story of Maharaj Sangram Singh Ji or give me links where i get related informations.
