Constructed in 1601 A.D., the Buland Darwaza is the main entrance gate to the Jama Masjid at Fatehpur Sikri in Uttar Pradesh. The Buland Darwaza, also known as the "Door of Victory," was built by Indian emperor Akbar to commemorate his victory over Gujarat.
The Buland Darwaza is considered as the highest gateway in the world. It is a glorifying example of Mughal architecture. It also displays sophistication and the technology in Akbar's regime as the Indian emperor.
