The author hopes to inspire readers with her or his journey through ‘Fatehpur Sikri: The Abandoned Capital City’ in pictures, sparking thoughts and actions towards an adventure. They aim to motivate some to visit Fatehpur Sikri, while offering those who have been a nostalgic trip down memory lane. The visit should serve as a reminder of what visitors saw, areas where they should have lingered longer, and perhaps what they missed. Fatehpur Sikri stands as a testament to the advanced scientific understanding and aesthetic sensibility of bygone cultures. Remarkably, the foundation of its buildings, stone flooring, and drainage system remains intact after over four centuries. Each visitor or reader can find connections to their profession, societal themes, or tales they’ve encountered – whether as architects, builders, city planners, or students. The journey of the pink/red stone, quarried in Bharatpur/Dholpur and transported as jumbo blocks by animal-drawn carts to Fatehpur Sikri, comes to life through the craftsmanship of skilled artisans. They sculpted this stone into ornate pillars, lintels, beams, latticework, geometric and floral motifs, stone frills, and walls – many from single stones – infusing them with life.
