Fatehpur Sikri, the dead city is located at 37 km in the west of Agra. Akbar transferred its residence into 1569 to the city. After the death of the emperor, the city was, because of the lack of water, completely abandoned. Thanks to this abandonment, it was not destroyed during multiple wars which were held at the end of the Mogul time and could become a city-museum, witness of the splendour of the imperial court in XVIth century.
