Place is considered to be the residence of one of the nine gems of Akbar - Birbal. It is located in Fatehpur Sikri. Made of red stone. Unfortunately the monument is not maintained well.

The palace (residence) of Birbal located at Fatherpur Sikri near Agra. I could relate the shooting of 2-3 Bollywood movies at this structure.
