Fatehpur Sikri was founded in 1569 by the Mughal emperor Akbar, and served as the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1571 to 1585. Here the construction of a planned walled city took fifteen years to build a series of royal palaces, harem, courts, a mosque, private quarters and other utility buildings. It is one of the best-preserved collections of Mughal architecture in India. In Fatehpur Sikri, capital of the Mughal Empire for only ten years, the complex of monuments and temples, all in a uniform architectural style, includes one of the largest mosques in India, the Jama Masjid. Within it is the tomb of Salim Chisti; many believe that he makes our wishes come true! Lucy Peck goes into the architectural magnificence of the city giving us the history behind the forgotten or ghost city .
