The Mughal Emperor Akbar built Fatehpur Sikri about 35 km from Agra, and moved his capital there. This place has a significant historical importance. This place is often visited by tourists as it is counted in the world heritage sites.
There is a story of victory behind the name Sikri. It came to be known as Sikri after the battle in which Babar defeated Rana Sanga. Akbar wanted to make Fatehpur Sikri his headquarters but due to few issues to could not do so.
Buland Darwaza was built by great Mughal Emperor Akbar at Fatehpur Sikri. He had built it to commemorate the victory over Gujarat. The central face of the Buland Darwaza shows Akbar’s religious broad mindedness which states in Urdu “Isa (Jesus), son of Mary said: The world is a Bridge, pass over it, but build no houses upon it. He who hopes for a day, may hope for eternity; but the World endures but an hour. Spend it in prayer for the rest is unseen.“
