For those who grew up on legends and fables of Akbar and Birbal - this is a nice place to visit. Else it is just a pretty house.

This was a disappointment! When we were told that the Birbal's house was around inside the Fatehpur Sikri complex, was very excited. But, only when you go there to the place you realise, that it is just four walls and that there was nothing to get exiting about it! Yes, could see a bit of history,

One of nine Jewels of King Akbar was Birbal who used to stay here and most of the Akbar Birbal stories were born here only. This is a huge complex and used to house almost all important people during reign of Akbar as well as Akbar himself.

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.
