The Palace Of Jodha Bai, Fatehpur Sikri Reviews

  • You feel the heritage of the kings and queens when inside these beautiful palaces. The very idea of being able to see the fortress of Akbar's most beloved companion makes you feel good. The rooms inside the palaces have a pungent smell which can give you a idea of how the queens would have lived their lives. You can imagine how different brides of Akbar would have walked on the floors on which standing.

  • Beautiful place, great architecture Can spend more than 3 hours there peacefully walking around the palace. The water management, the courtyard,the place for elephants, the bank, kitchen says it all on construction and how well organised it is. Well maintained. Take a guide or audio guide.

  • Amazing place to visit! Fatehpur Sikhri is well built up, small enough compared to Fatehpur Mahal! Park your cars at parking and travel to Sikri and Mahal through CNG Buses which are available at the parking at a penny ₹10 per person. Fatehpur Mahal has 25 Mahals with exquisite architecture. There is no fees for Fatehpur Sikhri but at the Mahal it's ₹40 per person for Indians. You can engage guides for both the monuments (they are easily available, btw you can take ASI certified guides as well). In all I would say must place to visit if you come to visit Agra or adjoining places!

  • A unique integration of Hindu, Persian and Islamic Architecture. But place is full of goons and criminals. Be careful while traveling to Fatehpur Sikri. Beware of fake guides and local cheaters. Nightmare experience. 4 star only for the buildings and structure. For people over there .. -be star.

  • A great historical site to visit. Near by salim chidti Dargah. As you enter the palace a few steps away there is a place for audio and virtual tour of palace for free , sitting is available. The slide keeps repeating so if you have missed something ypu can watch again. Aesthetic value of the place is well reserved, the park and greenry is magnificent. There are not much to eat near or inside the palace. Small vendors outside the palace have some light snacks.
