The City of Victoria

According to the story, the Mughal emperor Akbar came to a famous miracle worker in the city of Sikri concerned about the death of all his sons. Salim, as he was called, predicted that he would soon have a new son who would inherit his empire. After one of his wives became pregnant he built a palace in the city of Sikri, Rang Mahal, near the miracle worker to obtain good influences. The child once born was called Salim in honor of the "prophet". He decided to build a city which he called "City of Victory" after the recent conquest of Gujara, currently part Pakistan. Fatehpur, the City of Victoria, was abandoned in 1585, 14 years after its founding, due to lack of water.

Fatehpur Sikri

It was during our visit to Fathepur Skri, when we were in one of the rooms of the palace, that it came to our attention that some kids who we were watching what they did, and as if it was in a film one of them threw themselves into the greenish water from a rather considerable height. They did not do not do it for love of art because before he touched the water his companions were already asking us tip, heh, heh.
