Shajahan'bed room.In every palace there are beautiful disings.We left from there.Outside of the fort there are some shops.We buy key chanes.






Jehangiri Mahal


The fort was completed in the year 1671 but minor constructions and additionsare done by Shah Jahan .
 Jahangiri Mahal is one of the surviving buildings, of Akbar's era, in the Agra Fort. It was a magnificent palace constructed especially for women belonging to the royal household, and was used mainly by the Rajput wives of Akbar.




Diwan-I-Aam
           Diwan-I-Aam was the hall of public audience constructed by Shahjahan. The Emperor used to met officials and commoners here and listened to the petitioners. It was here in Diwan-I-Aam that the famous Peacock Throne was kept

 .

Diwan-I-khas was the hall of private audience and the emperor used to receive the important dignitaries here. Constructed by Shahjahan, between 1636 and 1637, it is known for its remarkable decoration with pietra dura
