Fatehpur Sikri
Fatehpur Sikri was renowned as the best attraction unlike others in town of Agra that was built by Akbar with great care and planning in the honor of Sheikh Salim Chisti.

The Akbar was blessed by Sheikh Salim Chishti, a Sufi saint who was named Salim after him and later came to be known as Jehangir. Initially, the town was originally named Sikri after the village, where it was founded.

However, going back to 12th century, ruins of the temple were confirmed in the reign of Rajputs before Mughals took over the area. In the village, the two mosques were announced in their conception in 1314 under Mohd. Khilji. According to the history records, Babur renamed the village 'Sikri' as 'Shukri', meaning 'thanks to the god'. It was also the most popular private residence and khanqah of Shiekh Salim Chishti, the famous Sufil.
