Did you know that India has one of the deepest step wells in Asia and one of the best-preserved abandoned cities in the world? Discover these and many other wonders on this tour to Fatehpur Sikri and Chand Baori from Jaipur.
Fatehpur Sikri + Chand Baori Private Day Trip
After picking you up at your hotel in Jaipur at 8 am, we'll head east to the town of Abhaneri, where the famous Chand Baori cistern is located. The drive will take about two hours.
We will visit this ancient water reservoir built in the 9th century, which has undoubtedly become one of the main tourist attractions of the state of Rajasthan. Chand Baori is a very special and unique sight to behold, with geometric shapes, over 3500 steps that create a labyrinth feel to the well, and a 20 meter-long depth. You've never seen anything like it.
Then, we will move on to Fatehpur Sikri, the best-preserved ghost city in the world. It was built in the 16th century to be the capital of the Mughal Empire and abandoned in less than 20 years. Want to know why this marvelous city fell into oblivion? We'll tell you all about it on the tour.
During this visit, we'll explore the buildings of this World Heritage city, such as the mosque, the palace of Jodha Bai -where the emperor's wives resided- the audience hall, or the tomb of the saint Salim Chishti. Of course, we will have time to admire the Buland Darwaza and Imperial Gate as well. Their colossal dimensions will leave you completely speechless.
Lastly, we'll drop you off at your hotel in Jaipur at 4 am. If you wish, however, we can drop you off somewhere in the city center of Agra instead - totally up to you.
You can book this tour with an English-speaking guide who will accompany you throughout the tour or if you prefer, you can opt for a more basic option that only includes an English-speaking driver. If you choose the unguided tour, you'll explore Fatehpur Sikri and Chand Baori on your own.
