Diwan-I Aam In Agra Fort

Return to the west side of Meena Bazaar's courtyard and descent the steps to the Diwan-i-Aam (hall of public Audience), a great hypostyle, built of plastered red sandstone. It is more than twice as long as the similar hall at Delhi but only slightly wider. Shah Jahan was responsible for the present building which, it is alleged, replaced an ancient structure of wood erected by Humayun. Women were permitted to watch the proceeding through screens set in the rear wall. In the centre of the wall is an arched recess decorated with pietra dura work. From here, throughout most morning, Shah Jahan presided over administrative matter, adjudications, sentencing criminals and hearing the pleas of his subjects. On becoming emperor in 1627, Shah Jahan commissioned the Peacock Throne. The Peacock Throne took 7 years to complete. The Peacock Throne was studded with finest jewels and first stood in this recess which was made to accommodate it.
