Jahangiri Mahal of Agra: A Mesmerizing Blend of Mughal Splendor

Spread India's Glorious Cultural & Spiritual Heritage

Jahangiri Mahal may be the most noteworthy building inside the Agra Fort of India. The Mahal was the principal Zenana (palace for women belonging to the royal household) and was used mainly by the Rajput wives of Akbar. It is a form of Islamic architecture.


The palace was built by Akbar for his Rajput wives. It is one of the earliest surviving buildings of Akbar’s reign. Jahangir in his memoirs stated that the buildings were erected by his father Akbar but did not take any credit for the construction of Jahangiri palace or Mahal. 

During the reign of Jahangir, it is believed to be the residence of his wife, Jagat Gosain, the Princess of Marwar and mother of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. 

There is a huge bowl called Hauz-i-Jahangiri that is carved out of a single piece of stone. This was used as a container for fragrant rose water.
