Birbal Bhavan in Fatehpur Sikri, Agra, India is a masterpiece of Indo Mughal architecture and workmanship. Its been built in Red sandstone - the stone thats available in plenty in that region. It was the official quarters for Mughal Emperor Akbars must trusted and loved Hindu minister. I love the construction and carving of Birbal Bhavan.
