It is what it is, a lotus-like monument inside a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Fatehpur Sikri, one of the most impressive of Mughal architecture.

A relatively small building within the complex but well worth the visit. The carved walls and central hub are quite amazing considering when it was built. Four suspended walkways lead to the central hub.

Its the throne of Mughal emperor Akbar. From this throne he listen to nobles & watch cultural events in the courtyard. This throne is on top of the pillar not on ground. His bedroom also hanging. Interesting! The architecture of the throne is excellent & still remains wonderful.

Upstairs, in the center, was the Emperor, surrounded in each of the corners of his most important ministers. On the ground floor were the "nobles" standing in the audience. A room with an elaborate architecture from which stands the central pillar, on which the Emperor listened to the "nobles".

The ghost city is the former imperial capital of the Mughal Empire and is located about 45 km west of Agra. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The intricate carving work of the Lotus throne where King Akbar used to sit with his ministers symbolises tolerance and unity. With all possible type of architectures embedded, it also smells of fairness and seriousness with which the discussions were held. Spend some time here before moving on.
