The mosque on the left side from the garden and Mihman Khana on the right side create mirror-like symmetry. Mihman Khana was used as the guest house during the death anniversaries of Mumtaz Mahal by the visitors then as a banquet hall for the entertainments of Indian princes and British ranked-people during the late 18th and the 19th centuries.
