Photographer's Note

World Heritage Sites - Fatehpur Sikri
This was shot inside the palace of Akbar the great, who was a Mughal Emperor..
This LOWER HARMSARA is a large colonnaded enclosure, wrongly called Camel Stables, Elephant Stables & Horse Stables, was probably intended for Housing the Servicing Maids of the Ladies Palaces, for which an entrance was provided in the north. The stone rings may have been used for fixing curtains for partitioning the space.
Sikri was the first planned city of the Mughals
Akbar (1556-1605), shifted his residence and court from Agra to Sikri, for a period of 13 years, from 1572 to 1585 to honour the Sufi Saint Sheikh Salim Chishti, who use to reside nearby.
This is the second attempt at this site, in order to register the ray of sunlight coming through the spaces of Pillers. Have I succeded?
