Perimeter Gate

Jami Masjid, Fatehpur Sikri (plan)

This photo shows a part of the walled perimeter of the congregational mosque at Fatehpur Sikri, where a side entrance gate pierces the wall. Akbar built this large mosque to honor a local saint, Sheikh Salim Chishti, who had correctly prophesied that Akbar would have a son. The son later became the emperor, Jahangir.
