Built by Shah Jehan between 1631-40, the Khas Mahal or 'Aramgah-i-Muqaddar' has the river on one side and Anguri Bagh on the other. Built for the two favourite daughters of Shah Jehan, Jahanara and Roshanara, it has a beautiful tank in front with fountains, white marble pavilions and open courts. The central hall or baradari and the adjoining colonnade or portico is almost of same size. The arched recesses of the main hall lead to the side rooms. The richly ornamented ceilings of the palace are flat and the complex has stylishly carved and molded brackets.
