Jahangir Hauz

Introduction
Agra tourism Jahangir Hauz is an popular Agra fort attraction that we can see during Agra fort sightseeing. It is prominently located in open place, for visitors. It is a circular bowl shaped tank used for bath. This circular bowl was carved out within a single piece of stone. It is 5 feet high, 8 feet in diameter and 25 meter circumference at the rim. It has stairs on the both side, internal and external. It shows that it was not buried in the ground and was mobile so it could be transported anywhere as well as camp or in the harem for bathing. It was made by the order of the Mughal emperor Jahangir. A Persian versified inscription in the Nasta'liq script was carved in relief which mentions 1611 as the year of its construction. The date coincides with the marriage of Jahangir with Nur Jahan Begam. Therefore, it is evidenced that it might have been presented to her as one of the marriage gifts. This basin was discovered from the ruins of one of the courts of Akbars palace in Agra Fort in 1843 and placed in front of the Diwan-i-Am, from here it was removed to Public gardens (Company Gardens) where it suffered damages. John Marshall, then Director General of Archaeological Survey of India, brought it back to Agra Fort in 1907 and placed it where it is now located and most probably, gave the name Jahangiri Mahal because of the reference to Jahangir in its inscription though it is only a part of Akbars' Bengali Mahal. Its size and unique shape attracts passing by tourists and such things are rarely seen in historical sites. Agra fort is a popular UNESCO world heritage site in Agra city and thus contributes in development of Uttar Pradesh tourism. Its good condition, makes it more photogenic fort complex.
