Fatehpur Sikri, which was once an imperial capital
frozen in time, constructed by Akbar the Great in the
16th century. This wonderful city constructed by red
sand stones was abandoned as abruptly as it had been
built. It has been generally stated that it was due to
failing in the water supply. Late evening arrival in

of his grandson's reign, Shah Jahan who built the
impressive imperial quarters and mosque. We proceed to
visit the most beautiful monument of India, the
Mahal, an enduring monument to love, with a
continually fulfilling beauty. It was built by the
Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1631-52, as a tomb
and memorial to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal (Jewel
of the Palace), who died at the age of 39 giving birth
to her 14th child. We spend enough time at Taj Mahal
to take this impressive memory home. After the visit
