  • One of the most beautiful places to see in fatehpur sikri and also in Agra. The place is spacious and with good architecture. We hired a guide and he explained us everything in English.. He was too good and while he was narrating I had these scenes in my head of how Jodha lived here. We can literally depict her lifestyle, her daily routines.. Where she cooked, prayed and of course other things associated with her. Take a guide if you are a history lover and if you come here not only for entertainment or sightseeing but also for your knowledge.

  • Jodha Bai's palace is the largest and most important part of Imperial Harem, having all facilities, provisions and safeguards. The name Jodha Bai palace is a misnomer in itself. It is most widely accepted that the building was for Raniwas or Zenani-Dyodhi. The palace building consists of a rectangular block measuring 231'8"x215' in dimension, with a single magnificent gateway on eastern side, which was protected by guard rooms, having triangular ceiling and other apartments. Several Hindu motifs have been used in the building, which confirms that occupant of the building was a Hindu lady.

  • Very beautiful architecture in Fatehpur Sikri. It is designed with such a skill that natural air passes through each corner of the building with cool effect in summer and little warmer in winters. Worth to visit by everyone if interested in tourism and architecture.

  • 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.
