Arrive at Chand Baori. Built over a thousand years ago in Abhaneri village of Rajasthan, Chand Baori is a deep four-sided well with a large temple in the background of the building. Baori consists of 3,500 narrow steps over 13 stories. It extends approximately 30 m (100 ft) into the ground, making it one of India's deepest and largest step-wells.
After that, head to Fatehpur Sikri. The dynastic architecture of Fatehpur Sikri was modelled on Timurid forms and styles. The city was built preferably with massive red sandstone. The city's architecture reflects both the Hindu and Muslim forms of domestic architecture popular in India at the time. The remarkable preservation of these original spaces allows modern archaeologists to reconstruct Mughal court life scenes and to understand better the hierarchy of the city's royal and noble residents. It can be accessed through gates along the 8-km-long fort wall, namely, Delhi Gate, Lal Gate, Agra Gate, Birbal's Gate, Chandanpal Gate, Gwalior Gate, Mehra Gate, Chor Gate & Ajmeri Gate. The palace contained a summer palace and a winter palace for Queen Jodha.
After this tour, guests will be dropped at Agra City at your place.
