Fatehpur Sikri in Agra may not draw as many visitors as the Taj Mahal, but it is also a good place to visit. Unlike the Taj Mahal, which is almost fully made of white marble, Fatehpur Sikri is built largely of red sandstone. It was built by Emperor Akbar in the 16th century. Like the Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Intricate carvings as a feature of all Mughal era building, and Fatehpur Sikri is a prime example of that. Almost all the sandstone minars (towers), and mahals (palaces) are carved.
