After crossing Amar Singh Gate, the attention of a visitor is drawn by itself by a beautiful building called Jahangiri Palace or Mahal.It is a double storied building of red sand stone which is built by Akbar the Grate for his son Jhangir.The most important feature of the edifice are its ornamental stone brackets which support the beams.Its walls and celling were painted with bright colours including golden paint in Rajput style balconies and domed chatries.In front is a large stone bowl which, probably used to contain fragrant rose water.
