Fatephur Sikri, Uttar Pradesh, India, Jan. 1, 2013A late stop at Fatephur Sikri (फ़तेहपुर सीकरी), the fabulous city of Sikriwal Rajput Raja, abandoned after fifteen years for lack of sufficient water resources.. We were on our way to Agra by then, only to hit the most chaotic traffic-jam I ever saw! It actually a mystery we did manage to get out of it, so intricate  and lawless was it.
