  • Restored by Lord Curzon more than a hundred years ago. Originally the columns and ceilings were painted in gold and the plasterwork was also ornamented in gold and white shell lime.  more »
  • It is not the most beautiful place in Agra Castle, it is a place where the building and the courtyard are fused and it settles down very much. Especially, when I visited, it was very early in the evening, so it grew very much at sunset.

  • It was a hall for General public Justices, well crafted architecture
  • Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience) was constructed by Shah Jahan in 1631 Shah Jahan met the general public here & heard their complaints This audience ceremony was known as Jharokha Darshan. The rectangular mansion was built in red sandstone & has 48 pillars, the outer pillars aligned in pairs support the arches It is open on three sides with 27 bays Eastern side has an elevated jharokha balcony in the centre which used to house the royal throne. This royal throne chamber made of white marble has exquisite Pietra Dura inlay works.  A rectangular marble dice below the Jharoka was used by the PM to submit the public grievance applications to the Emperor. This chamber is connected with the Machchi Bhawan at its rear by a staircase. Royal ladies viewed the Diwan-i-Am ceremonies through perforated screens on either sides of throne chamber
