Jahangir Mahal and Akbari Mahal in Agra, UP

Jahangir palace is the largest part of Agra Fort built by Akbar for his son Jahangir in 1573. Jahangir's wife used to reside in this palace. Only 30 of the original 500 buildings at the site survive today. Most of the Fort was destroyed by Shah Jahan and the British invaders afterwards.
