Fatehpur Sikri tomb

A childless Mughal king Akbar came to sufi saint Salim Chishti and his request for a child was fulfilled. After Samil Chishti died he made this mazaar(tomb). Initially this was made in red stone but later, someone from the mughal dynasty itself, removed the red stone and made it again in white marble which makes this stand out in the red surroundings. You can see I was not paying too much attention to the guide otherwise I'd have been able to give you more details including the names.
