Views: 2494

The video is of Akbari Mahal or Akbar’s Palace in the Agra Fort, Uttar Pradesh state. Built during 1565-69, the building served residential purposes and was once part of a larger palace complex. The original structure was a huge complex of suites and chambers set up around a large stone-paved courtyard. Situated between the Jehangiri Mahal and Bengali Burj, the Akbari Mahal is so designed as to ensure maximum security for the women inmates.

Also seen in the video is Anguri Bagh (garden of grapes), a garden set in geometrical patterns. As the name suggests, the royals grew fine grape vines and beautiful flowering plants here.
