When you visit Fathehpur Siktri dont miss out on going to the Jodha Bai Palace. The palace is another architectural beauty of the mughals. It also has a part called the Birbal Bhavan, where it is claimed that Birbal use to hold his meetings. The charm of this place is that the name instantly connects you to Birbal the Witty... More

Its in the palace of akbar in sikri. Its special because it was built for king's minister "birbal". He was the only minister who used to live inside palace. Made up of red stone with nice art and carvings.

This palace is mistakenly called Birbal palace. No man could live near the Harem of King Akbar. This is part of Fatehpur sikri only so do not buy separate tiocket.

This place can be covered by Fathepur & Sikri tour. Birbal bhavan was inside Sikri. Birbal was the prime minister of Akbar and was known for his wisdom. Sikri is well maintained and a historical place to visit. It is recommended to take one guide with you to understand the places and history behind it.

Birbal Bhavan is in Fathepur Sikri complex itself one of the monument that is must see. Again not sure why there is a separate review only for this as it can be visited when visiting Fathepur Sikri. Trip Advisor need to manage on how to club the reviews where the destination of the place is written in different names or... More

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.
