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.

    I agree with you about Fatehpur Sikri being a lot quieter then the Taj Mahal. I’ve got quite a lot of photos done there and they’re all up at the main site http://www.momentaryawe.com (just click on India).

    Did you go to the Baby Taj? It was on the other side of the river and also a lot quiter and very interesting to photograph.
