    Is Fatehpur Sikri worth visiting

    Hi all

    We are going to spend 2 days in Agra and one of my friend has suggested to visit Fatehpur Sikri too. After checking some pics of Fatehpur Sikri fort I found that its kind of similar to Red Fort in Delhi. Can somebody suggest me is it worth visiting Fatehpur Sikri and how much time it takes from Agra to Fatehpur Sikri.

    What all can I expect from Fatehpur Sikri apart from the fort

    If you will take my suggestion then you should visit Fatehpur Sikri (its a must visit place in my list) and its not at all like Red Fort of Delhi. It's much more bigger and beautiful then Red Fort. In Fatehpur Sikri you can see

    Diwan-e-Khas (hall of private audience)
    Buland Darwaza (54 meters high entrance gate to Fatehpur Sikri Fort
    Jama Masjid (Mosque)
    Tomb of Salim Chisti (left side hall in Jama Masjid)
    Panch Mahal (5 storied building constructed in 15th century)


    In total its one of the most wonderful places constructed during Mugal Period in India
