Photographer's Note

The Khas mahal is located inside the Lal qila (Red fort), which is a large fort complex located in Old Delhi. Consisting of three parts, viz tasbih-khana (chamber of telling beads), khwabgah (sleeping chamber) and tosha-khana (wardrobe) or baithak (sitting room), the Khas mahal (private palace) served as Mughal emperor residence. Of the rich and beautiful decoration in the interior of the building, the attractive marble screen carved with a scale of justice (Mizan-i-adal) is a charming specimen of Mughal art. The projecting tower to the east of the Khas mahal is called Muthamman-burj (octogonal tower) where the emperor appeared every morning before his subjects in a ceremony called Jharokha darshan.
