Founded by Akbar in 1569, the main motive behind establishing this town was to make it the new capital of Mughal Empire.
The town served the motive well for over one-and-a-half decades, until before a severe draught hit the town and forced the residents to find some other place to relocate. People left the town, and so did the capital which was then moved to Agra. After this attack, the town was said to be a Ghost Town.
