Diwan-i-Khas, Red Fort

The Diwan-i-Khas was the hall where Mughal emperors met with close confidants and esteemed ministers. The building is extremely beautiful, with detailed inlay work and intricate screens, but is, unfortunately, not in great shape. A South Indian movie was being filmed in the surrounding gardens while we were there; and most of the visitors were more interested in the shooting of a dance sequence than in the buildings.
