The tomb of Akbar the great is an important Mughal architectural masterpiece built in 1605-1613. Akbar is said to have planned his own tomb and selected a suitable site for it. The grounds are a precise 690 sq m, aligned with the points of the compass, surrounded by walls, and laid out as a classic charbagh garden style. A gatehouse stands at the center of each wall, and broad paved avenues, laid out in Mughal style with central running water channels representing the four rivers of Paradise, lead from these to the tomb at the center of the square.
We did not get to Fatehpur Sikri due to paucity of time. But it is worth a visit. I have been there before and totally loved it.
