Diwan-i-khas Overview

Ranked 4 of 118 sightseeing in Agra
Just adjacent to the Diwan-e-am, there is a red sand stone building known as Diwan-i-khas. Since this place was much smaller than the court held for private audience. It is here that the Mughal emperor would have private meetings with the visiting dignitaries and guests. It was built in the year 1635 by Shah Jahan.

Perhaps the most astonishing design by Mughal standards is Hauz-i-Jehandiri. Hauz- I- Jehandiri or Jehangir's tank was built in 1611. In fact, it has 3 steps inside as well as outside to get in and out of the tank. You will find Persian inscriptions on the exteriors of the rim.

Symbol Of The Golden Period

A big hall for personal and private meetings with the Emperor Shah Jahan, it was constructed by Shah Jahan In 1637, and here the precious Peacock Throne was placed, just a Symbol of the Golden Period of Mughal Dynasty. Built just Royally, and minutely things were cared, even for the Royal Ladies access, floral and Persian patterns are much enchanting, to the visitors.
