About Birbal's House

Another red sandstone structure, the Birbal House or Birbal Bhawan in Fatehpur Sikri, Agra is attributed to be the house of Birbal- one of the nine most precious gems (Navratna) of Emperor Akbar. Located near the Jodha Bai Palace, the Bhawan is intricately crafted and has a double dome structure to keep it cool during summers. Legend has it that this palatial house is secretly connected to the Hathi Pol, which gave direct access to Birbal to the Agra Fort. The city was ultimately abandoned due to the scarcity of water, but this place is still considered one of the best places to visit in Agra. There is no better way than French author, Victor Hughes words to describe the beauty of the site, who said it looked like a miniature jewelry box.
