One of the finest Mughal structures in India, the tomb was built by Emperor Akbar between 1580 and 1581, dedicated to the sufi saint Salim Chisti. He predicted the birth of Akbar’s son and successor Jahangir, who was named Salim in honour of the saint. The tomb is located in Fatehpur Sikri, a city built by Akbar. Other than the pilgrims, the tomb is visited by tourists especially photographers, who admire the beauty of the tomb. The stunning portico, mother of pearl inlay mosaics, arabesque patterns, and marble screens make this tomb a unique pilgrimage site.
