Trip Planner: Asia / India / Uttar Pradesh / Agra District / Fatehpur Sikri / Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti
One of the most highly regarded examples of Mughal architecture in the country, Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti serves as the final resting place of the Sufi saint. Devotees visit the graceful 16th-century tomb to request blessings from the saint, tying a signifying thread to the marble screens that enclose the building so their wishes will not be forgotten. Admire the intricately carved edifice, adorned with arabesques and selections from the Koran, and the plinth's yellow and black mosaics. Note that women will have to wear a scarf on their head to enter, and all visitors must remove their shoes. Wear socks so as not to burn your feet on the sun scorched ground.

Stay away from the guides and completely avoid talking to vendors anywhere near this place. They are there to simply cheat the tourists in the name of charity. Otherwise it was a nice experience.
