Buland Darwaza

, Agra

Buland Darwaza is part of Fatehpur Sikri
Buland Darwaza, an entrance constructed by Akbar to celebrate his victory in 1573 over the kingdom of Khandesh in Gujarat, is the gateway to the renowned Fatehpur Sikri near Agra. This exquisite architectural wonder is really an eye catching view for travelers and tourists, which is visible even from a long distance. The Darwaza is placed at an elevated plain of height about 40 meters and seems to be inviting the tourists to the land of Agra wholeheartedly.

The mammoth entrance is one of the grandeur monuments built by Akbar in Agra. Many verses from the Koran are inscribed on the Darwaza. This is really made with simple but beautiful adornments.

Agra, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the world famous Taj Mahal, which depicts the undying true love by Shah Jahan to his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Architecture gets its meaning from this place!
