  • The Hall of Private Audiences is one of the highlights of the visit. Externally it is not particularly impressive, but the inside, the decoration, in particular the central column, is spectacular.  more »
  • Just another of the beautifully architecturally designed building with the complex. The entrance of the Lotus Throne room.  more »
  • The second most intriguing monument in the compound. From outside our looks like it is two storeyed, but the structure from inside shows how it is only usable as an audience hall with the emperor placed high above on an embellished and tastefully done column. A lovely building which would surely catch your attention
  • Diwan-I-Khas (Hall of Private Audience) is the chamber constructed in 1571-85 by Akbar to consult with his navratnas. Diwan-I-Khas is a plain square building with four chatris on top But it's striking feature is a 7m high red sandstone pillar rising from the centre of the hall with a tree shaped capital, on which rests a circular throne This central column has a square base & an octagonal shaft, both carved with geometrical & floral designs. The 36 serpentine brackets that support the circular platform are connected to each corner of the building by four stone bridges
