About the walk

Akbar, the third Mughal emperor, ruled India for 49 years. He was known to be a kind ruler, a great warrior and an art lover, and also a believer in equality and peace, leading his kingdom to conquer one - third of the world’s wealth.

The monument of Sikandra in Agra (previously known as Akbarabad, or the land of king Akbar) is the final resting place of the king. It is a fine example of Mughal architecture and was built during the peak of the Mughal rule. In the course of the walk, we will talk about Akbar’s life and beliefs, Mughal architecture, the history of the monument and explore the greenery of the remnants of the city forest. We will also experience the tranquility and peace the monument evokes, read some poetry and listen to the flute.
