  • When I visited this area last time, restoration work was being done, and i could only see some of them, but this time they had a completely beautiful appearance. Compared to Agra Castle, it lacks volume a little, but the scenery of the people relaxing on the lawn in front of the building was peaceful and peaceful.

  • The interior was completely plundered following the Indian Rebellion of 1857. The throne, the carpets, and any other items went missing. The hall today is, therefore, only a shell of what it used to be. Recent restoration work has been redone on the panels of inlay and has also reproduced the gilded pattern on one of the pillars fronting the hall. In the riverbed below the hall and the connected buildings was the space known as zer-jharokha, or "beneath the lattices"
  • According to Amir Khusraw, " If there be a paradise on the earth , it is this, it is this, it is this." The hall was used by the emperor for giving private audience to the selected courtiers and visitors. Over the marble pedestal in its centre stood the famous Peacock Throne which was removed in 1739 by Nadir Shah. The present wooden ceiling of the hall was painted in 1911. The four corners of its roof are surmounted by pillared chhatris.
