Built from scratch in 1571 by Akbar in honor of the Sufi saint Salim Chisti, who had predicted the birth of a son, this grand ghost city is carved entirely from red sandstone. It was only inhabited for 14 years, after which -- some say because of water shortages -- it was totally abandoned.


It's a bizarre experience to wander through this magnificent, architecturally fascinating monument, a site carved by the passing of time.


The design has strong Hindu and Jain design elements, indicative again of builder's embracing attitude to the conquered and their faiths.


It attracts not only the turiosts but also the producers for racy Indian MTVs.
