Jahangir Mahal

Introduction
Agra tourism It is an important Agra fort attraction. Jahangiri Mahal is the most notable building inside the Agra fort of India. The Mahal was mainly used by the Rajpoot wives of Akbar. It is also a blend of Hindu and Central Asian culture. The palace was built by the Akbar between 1565-1569. It is one of the early surviving buildings of the Mughal reign. It was used as a residence by Mughal empress Nur Jahan. There is a huge bowl called Hauz I Jahangiri. This bowl is carved out within a single piece stone. It was used as a container of fragrant rose water. it has an impressive fašade facing an open court to the west. It has an arched portal with two beautiful jharokhas, a series of ornamental arches and an octagonal tower on its either side. There is a complex arrangement of rooms, halls, corridors, galleries and verandahs in the palace, around a square central courtyard. The main portal leads to a square entrance hall with ribs-and-panels vaulted ceiling that takes one to identical annexes built on the northern and southern side of the palace and have beautiful Tibara dalans and side rooms. Built in red sandstone, the court showcases skillfully carved brackets supporting chhajja, a whispering gallery in the second storey and the jalied balustrade crowning each fašade. A square chhatri on top of each fašade looks quite impressive. An additional floor in the single-storeyed Assembly Hall looks like a hanging balcony. This graceful hall is unique because of the corridor on three of its sides and beautifully carved perforated screens inside it. There is a series of living rooms on its southern side. The western hall has a flat ceiling and elaborate carvings. The room on the southwestern corner of the court has a pyramidal ceiling while that on the northwestern corner has a vaulted lotus ceiling. The eastern side rooms have beautiful stuccowork and arabesque designs.
