Inside the Rang Mahal, Red Fort, New Delhi

A familiar shot of the the Rang Mahal inside the Red Fort, New Delhi. It is also known as the Begum Mahal and is located near Diwan-i-Khas in the Red Fort. It was the residence of the Sultan’s main wife. Earlier there used to be fountains at its base, but later it was transformed to a lotus-shaped marble palace. It is believed that perfumed water was supplied through the pipe lines and the ceilings of this palace were covered with gold and silver.
