Photographer's Note

This is at Fatehpur Sikri - from inside Salim Chisti's tomb. Fatehpur Sikri is a 16th-century capital city built by the Mughal emperor Akbar. The widow meshwork that you see here have been carved out of solid slats of marble. The work done is amazingly neat and the most curious part of it is that every 'window' has a different filgiree design. They say the craftsmanship at Chisti's tomb is far more inctricate and challenging than what you see at Taj - around 30 miles away from here.
