“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

This is a seat for the emperor made inside Diwan-i-am. Exquisitely carved, it is a fine example of mughal artwork. One of the major attractions at Fatehpur Sikri. However, some detailed notes about the attraction with proper displays and some lightings could brighten things up further.
