Khwabgah was Emperor Akbar private quarters. Meaning "Dream Palace" he had a library, small bedroom and bathroom, airy verandas on the upper floors and everything he needed to make this a little spot of paradise. Today it is surrounded by beautiful gardens and an ornamental pool.

Khwabgah or the Dream Palace was conceived for Emperor Akbar's personal use. It has a separate room for the emperor to hold secret meetings with his nobles, a personal library with a number of books and official documents. The two storey red sandstone building is one of the most well planned buildings of Fatehpur Sikri.

Everything is ok but bad smell is disturbing. It is better to have a guide or to have book on Mughal Emperor's before visiting thiese locations of Fatehpur Sikri.
