About Jahangir Palace

One of the most noteworthy buildings in Agra Fort is Jahangir Palace. A unique amalgamation of the Hindu and Central Asian architectural style, which was the rarest in those days. It was originally built by Akbar and was used as the principle Zenana to keep his Rajput wives. The palace was designed in such a way to provide ultimate pleasure and comforts to Prince Jahangir. Later, the palace was also used as the residence of Mughal empress Nur Jahan. The massive facade of the palace is known to be the most remarkable. There's a rectangular opening with sculpted panels and projecting balconies supported by circular pillars, elegant brackets with Bengal slanting roofs and six-pointed stars similar to the main gate of Purana Qila, New Delhi. The palace features a small Mughal garden that was a way of escape to nature for the rulers. And also, a huge bowl called Hauz-i-Jahangir carved out of a single stone that was used as a container for fragrant rose water. The remnants of the palace give you a fair idea of its opulence, and notable architecture.
