Fatehpur Sikri

Busride from Jaipur to Agra. I made the camel sketch underway, that explains the shaky lines. We paused at a city, Fatehpur Sikri, which was built in 1571  and abandoned only 14 years later. Lack of water..., no wonder, even during our visit it was blazing hot there. But the marvellous red granite preserved the palace like they left it only yesterday.
Bus van Jaipur naar Agra. We bezochten een verlaten stad, Fatehpur Sikri, gebouwd in 1571, verlaten 14 jaar later vanwege het gebrek aan water. Geen wonder, tijdens ons bezoek was het ook al snikheet.
