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.
