Mariam-Uz-Zamani Palace, Fatehpur Sikri

Located within the main fort complex of Fatehpur Sikri, the Mariam-uz-Zamani Palace is a lovely Mughal themed palace that was the home of Akbar’s wife—Jodha Bai. It was the seat of power during both Akbar and his son’s Jehangir’s reign.

Another belief goes that the palace was also known as Turkish Sultana’s House because it served as the residence to his wife, Mariam-uz-Zamani. However, this is disputed due to the small size.

The palace was famous for its luxurious decors and ancestral architecture. Akbar spent a lot of money and hired the best of workers to build the structure. The surrounding gardens and carvings all over the building add to the beauty and magnificence of the building. Both the exterior and interior feature ornamental relief of geometrical and floral designs and finishes.
