It is the capital of India since 1912 and the second most populous city in the country . Located in the center of the province of Delhi, is divided into two parts ( old and new ) and it can be admired forts, palaces , tombs and temples of the most varied styles with government buildings in colonial style, modern industries , trades and residential areas all with modern amenities . We recommend visiting the Red Fort, the Jama Masijd , Raj Ghat and the India Gate in the Old Town . In the new area we suggest the Qutab Minar, Birla Temple and the Sikh Temple.
Sikandra is the mausoleum of Akbar. Akbar himself planned his own tomb and selected a suitable site for constructing this beautiful monument. To construct a tomb in one's lifetime was a Tartary custom, which the Mughals followed religiously. This structure has a perfect blending of Hindu, Christian, Islamic, Buddhist, Jain themes. Sikandra is named after Sikandar Lodi, the Delhi ruler who was in power from 1488 to 1517. A visit to Akbar's monument opens before one, the completeness of Akbar's personality as completely as the Taj Mahal does of Mumtaz Mahal's .
It is a city that dominates a feminine touch in their structures and history. Created by Sultan Sikandar Lodi order , years later in her love of an emperor for his wife was reflected in eternity through the monument that identifies both the city and the whole country in the world : the Taj Mahal. The city was occupied for long periods by Muslims , inheriting architectural and urban structures of medieval character we can admire today and its winding streets
Located 35 kilometers from Agra , stands on a rocky platform imperial Fatehpur Sikri, the ruins of which was the ancient capital of the Mongol Empire in the sixteenth century . Surrounded by a wall of 6 km, the d is uninhabited and has been declared architectural heritage .
Known as the Pink City , formerly known as Rajputana, owes its nickname to the color of the sandstone with the buildings of the old city were built. Nice design of this villa is due to the Maharaja Jai Sigh II which began construction in 1728 and got his architect Vidyadhar Chakravarty mix with confidence styles as diverse as Hindu , Jain , Mongol and Persian.
Amber, was the capital of the state before Jaipur. Located 11 kilometers from Jaipur. Amer is one of the most famous forts of Rajasthan. It is an old fort, built in 1592 by Raja Man Singh. This fort is also very popularly known as the Amer Palace. The Amer Fort was built in red sandstone and marble and the Maotha Lake adds a certain charm to the entire Fort. The Amer Fort has influences of both Hindu and Muslim architecture.
