We took a 21 mile (35 km) ride which took about an hour to see Fatehpur Siki, it is a World Heritage Site. The name of the place came about after the Mughal Emperor Bābar defeated Rāṇā Sāngā in a battle at a place called Sikrī . Then the Mughal Emperor Akbar wanted to make Fatehpūr Sikrī his headquarters, so he built a majestic fort; due to shortage of water, however, he had to ultimately move his headquarters to Agra Fort.

They have a temple at the site in which you lay down scarfs and flowers after which you tie a knot outside the temple wall for good luck. See the short video of the process.
