The Royal Complex
The Royal Complex is the secular part of Fatehpur Sikri. It is divided into two sections, an adminstrative section which occupies the northern part of the complex, and the private quarters and harem of the emperor, which occupy the southern portion of the complex. There are two tours of the royal complex below--an earlier map-based tour with pop-up descriptions of each of the buildings, and a newer 360-degree virtual tour with embedded audio narration, photos, and videos.
