  • 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.

  • The palace was build with all basic facilities. It has rooms for summer and winter seperately. A unique combination of different art forms like Hindu, Persian, Islamic etc. Be careful of guides, most of them are unorthorized and just trying to loot you.

  • Jodha Bai’s Palace is inside the Fatehpur sikri fort. The palace has summer rooms and winter rooms. The Palace is well maintained, quiet, beautiful and clean.

  • Great piece of architecture Place is surrounded by so called guides which they are not . They follow you like a hawk

  • Totally beautiful, but one of the worst travel experiences ever. From the parking lot to the bus, constantly hounded by hawkers and unofficial guides. They do not allow outside guides. Then into an overcrowded bus for the 10 minute ride from parking to gate. Upon arrival, we were still bombarded, both inside and out by these unofficial guides. We could not go more than 5 minutes without being approached, sometimes rather aggressively. We finally cut our visit short when trying to get to the mosque, we were angrily yelled at by a guide because we refused to follow him. We saw no western tourists here, and can understand why. Even our driver said he had to watch what he said there for fear of retribution. While the site is breathtaking, until they clean up their act, it is better skipped.
