About Akbar's Palace and Museum

Akbar's Palace, as the name suggests, was built by the great emperor Akbar. He used it as his home during his visits and pilgrimages to Ajmer. The impregnability of the structure can be attributed to the two impressive stone walls that surrounded the palace. A striking feature within these walls is the massive idol of Goddess Kali made entirely of black marble. In 1908, a portion of the palace was converted into a museum. It showcases ancient and medieval Mughal and Rajput military armor, beautiful stone structures, delicate miniature paintings and Hindu figurines dating back to the 6th and 7th century, among other ancient artifacts. This palace is a masterpiece of Mughal architecture in India and should definitely be on your exploration list when you visit Ajmer.

Historical Context: Place of historic meeting between Emperor Jehangir and Sir Thomas Roe of British East India Company.
