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.
