The specially build palace for one of the ministers of king was envy of other ministers. Birble's palace was the only palace inside emperor's house and is a fine symbol of trust of emperor on his minister.

This is found within the Sikri complex, is made of red sandstone. There's also a platform where Tansen is said to have rendered his concerts for Akbar.

Birbal is considered to be most intelligent courtier of Moghul King Akbar and he was among the Nav Ratna (Nine Gems) of King. Birbal being a Hindu, was always given a private place to live and that's how you find this small palace within Fatehpur Sikri complex which is aid to be palace of Birbal.

Birbal was the only minister in Akbar's court to live inside the palace compound. Wonderful architecture. Worth seeing. Don't miss Fatehpur Sikri and it's marvels.

One of the monument in Fatehpur Sikri. Nothing left to watch except the empty walls and the construction.

The whole of Fatehpur Sikri is a great architectural wonder and the same is the case with Birbal Bhavan. It has been made in a very intricate way and I really loved the various elements to it.

Nothing fancy about it. It is situated within the fort of fatehpur sikri. It just a waste of time to visit birbal bhawan.
