Fatehpur Sikri was one of the places I had to go to in India. From all the photos I saw and the stories I heard, it was a must. The city is HUGE! I couldn't even visit it all, but the parts I saw were great. Fatehpur Sikri is an ancient city in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. The city was constructed by Mughal emperor Akbar the Great in 1570. It is the first Mughal city and also built with Islamic, Indian and Persian architectural design. The city is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site is, itself, a ghost town but the city has a decent population. More Info: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatehpur_Sikri
