"Ankh Michauli " Top 5 Page for this destination Fatehpur Sikri Things to Do Tip by keeweechic

Fatehpur Sikri Things to Do: 202 reviews and 477 photos


Just next to the Diwan-I-Khaas is Ankh Michauli or the Treasury. It has four rooms with two staircases which lead up to the roof. There are two theories on what this use for (thus the two names). One it is believed to have been used for playing Ankh Micholi which is a game of hide and seek supposedly with the harem ladies the other which is probably more correct is that the building was used as the imperial treasury and the hollow walls with the recesses were for storing the treasures and rare manuscripts of Akbar.
