Buland Darwaza is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Fatehpur Sikri. It is the heritage city of India. This 54 m high Buland Darwaza is known as the Gate of Victory and is the main entry gate. This gate was built to celebrate the victory of the great Mughal ruler, Akbar in Gujarat. There is an inscription which reads, "The world is a bridge, pass over it but built no house upon it. He, who hopes for an hour, hopes for Eternity, for the world is but an hour". Just outside this Darwaza is a deep well in which local daredevils used to jump from the top of the entrance into the water. The Shahi Darwaza is the authorized entrance, where accredited guides can be hired.
