The city was built by the Emperor Akbar between 1570 and 1586. It was the capital of the Mughal Empire for 10 years but was abandonned. Most of the courtyards were paved. The Zenana Garden is northwest of Sunahra Makan (Miriam's House) and was designed as a charbagh with straight walks and shallow water channels. The pond was excavated in 1891 but is not maintained. The Diwan-I-Aam (Hall of Public Audience) is enclosed by colonnades and has a large open area and walkways which divide the space into six plots (chamans) of unequal size.
Address - Fatepur Sikri, India
