Great architecture, beautifully ornate and I suggest going with a guide
Mar 2020
While I know little about architecture I love the angles and arches of it, this place fit right into that! There are so many beautiful spots I could have spent way longer just walking around soaking it in and taking pictures. I suggest a guide as they know all the interesting angles to take great pictures of you! We also learned quite a bit from out guide, making the palace and it's history more interesting. If for no other reason I recommend stopping here for the sheer beauty it provides!

Beautiful building

Sheesh Mahal is beautifully ornamental and is testament of the enormous talents of the Indian craftsmen, who built it.

A great tribute to artisans and visionaries

I am only sorry that we were not able to see this building after dark when it would have been illuminated by candlelight. It is nevertheless a sight to behold in daytime too and to be able to marvel at the skill of the craftsmen and the imagination of the designer. Make sure you don’t miss it.

Wonderful piece of art

Beautifully crafted. The walls and ceilings are stuffed with mirrors and the total attire is splendid. The Taj Mahal can be seen from the windows.

Mirror, mirror

Located in Agra Fort, it is so called because of the mirrors embedded in the ceiling and walls. This was the royal bath. You can see it from the outside and maybe peep through the opening in the door if you are lucky as the place is out of bounds and has been closed for a long time now. If you can get close, and it is possible as this is India and who you know or how much you can pay someone, will open door. No one knows why it is closed.

Not able to see it fully, as seems it opens on very few days now. Heard from others a nice place. But was not able to see myself :-(

Currently can only look inside, but not enter
Dec 2019
As of December 2019 you can only look inside through the door. When I visited the site was mostly unlit, so you do not really get the effect of the mirror decorations.

Impressive ...

If you are visiting Red Fort in Agra, you will definitely see this part of it. The decoration is extensive and very ornate. The mirror decoration bounces even a small amount of light around, brightening the space.
