#56 of 445 in Things to do in Agra
One of the highlights of Agra Fort, Jahangir Mahal was originally built as "zenana"--residential quarters for women in a Hindu family. Dating back to the 16th century, the palace remains an outstanding example of Mughal Architecture, featuring lavish halls decorated with intricate Hindu and Islamic motifs engraved in stone. Look for Hauz-i-Jahangiri in the courtyard--a huge circular basin carved out of a single block of stone, used for keeping fragrant rose water. Make Jahangir Mahal a centerpiece of your Agra vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Agra online day trip planner.
