The Secret Rooms of Akbar's Palace at Fatehpur Sikri

It was a very long day that I spent in Akbar's Palace. Early in the day I parted ways with my guide to walk around the grounds by myself. The palace was relatively empty, being a bit out of the hustle and bustle of Agra. Most everyone else tended to go over to the Taj, but I found the most delicate and beautiful parts to be in these oft-neglected quarters.

    this is a truly magical place - fancy building a city without thinking of the water supply ??
