The Red Fort, Agra: 181 reviews and 431 photos

The Hall of Public Audiences is a large rectangular assembly hall, open on three sides to the courtyard - now lawned gardens. Though built of red sandstone, it is covered with white shell plaster to resemble marble. In the eastern wall is a 'jharokha' known as the Takht-i-Murassa (Throne room - 3rd photo), which consists of a three-arched opening inlaid with precious stones.
It is connected to the royal apartments by a staircase to the left of the dais.
