This is part of fatehpursikri only. So no need to buy ticket separately. This is made of red sandstone. Carving around it is very beautiful. On top four chattries(umbrellas) are beautiful. These kiosks are from hindu architecture.

Diwan-i-khas is located inside the compound of Jodhabai palace at Fatehpur Sikri. It reflects beautiful architecture of the Mughal era. The guide provided valuable information and the history of this place.

Diwan-i-Khass used to be the hall of audience for Akbar and his ministers and nobles. Tourists can locate it going through the Jodhabai's palace. The entire campus is an outstanding example of Mughal architecture.

It is a part of Fathepur Sikri monuments. Get a audio guide at Fathepur Sikri to visit all the monuments. Also as suggested earlier Trip Advisor to not have reviews for separate monument in the same complex. Travellers will get confused searching for attractions.
