About Diwan-i-khas, Fatehpur Sikri

This is the hall of private audience and here the Emperor or the Ruler met the private audience and resolved the issues. The central platform attached to a huge pillar of the royal complex is the seat of the ruler and the huge diagonal galleries served as a seat for the ministers.

The tale also goes that the building was a storehouse for the gems and jewels. This can be also verified with the fact that the Ankh Michauli or the treasury for gold and silver constructed in red sand stone has double-storey facades. The pretty kiosks and the inverted lotus dome provide an altitude to the structure.

The elegant capital composed by joining 36 brackets arising from the pillar in 3 tiers in a circular shape adds to the exquisiteness of this masterpiece.
