This is a place where king Akbar had meetings with royal people. Lotus thorne is a beautiful structure inside diwan- i- khas. This building is made as per indo- Islamic architecture. It is also called Jewel house.

This UNESCO heritage site is enchanting. It was only the capital of the Mughals for roughly 16 years but so much work went into building this Fort.

It's that rare monument "Akbar's palace" inspired by every religion known to mankind. Designed by a Bengali architect the exquisitely carved structure shows Persian, Christian, Islamic, bhudhist and Hindu influences. It's dominated by "Chatteris" umbrella shaped structures which are more popular as part of Rajasthani architecture than the standard domes which the Mughals built. Poetry in sand stone
