Buland Darwaza Fatehpur Sikri and a majestic gateway situated in Fatehpur Sikri near Agra. This arch was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar when he won the battle fought with king of Khandesh, which is now present day Gujarat.This monument is shaped like an arch and was built in 1573 in the Fatehpur Sikri Buland Darwaza. Buland Darwaza has a very famous inscription written on it. This inscription is actually a quote attributed to Jesus Christ, who is revered equally by both Christians as well as Muslims. It says, "The World is but a bridge, pass over but build no houses on it." that is almost ironical for a city that was abandoned in less than 15 years from the day it was constructed.
