Fatehpur Sikri

Agra has another fort, which has a large mosque on the side.

Ancient India seems to be built of stone.  I guess that is why so much of ancient India remains today.

While hanging around the city I was looking at my kids hanging around in the palace and I started imagining what it was like way back when the city was thriving.  Then I started to imagine the bunch of them playing versions of their own ancestors, like one of those quasi-historical episodes of the Simpsons which would follow great-great grandpa Bart (whose whole family looked amazingly like people from modern times).  In my mind Z has a large helmet on, S has a Mughal style mustache, and Mo is serving a flask of something.
