Jehangiri Mahal : This is the first prominent building as one come into through the Amar Singh Gate and emerges out of the passageway. Positioned north of the gate at the ending of a roomy lawn, the Jahangir’s palace was built by Akbar as a residence for his son Jahangir. The main private residence in the fort, it is a merge of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. The Mahal is reached in the course of an impressive gateway and its inner courtyard composed of a two storey facade of gorgeous halls, abundant carvings on stone, heavy brackets elegantly carved with animal and floral motifs, piers and cross beams by means of remnants of the affluent gilded decorations which once enclosed a great deal of the structure. There is a verandah with slim pillars on the eastern front which face the river front. This is the most significant building remaining from Akbars era as his successors demolished quite a lot of of Akbar's red sand structures restoring them with marble one's. To the right of Jahangiri Mahal is a uncomplicated palace of Akbar's favorite queen Jodha Bai.
