Birbal’s Palace, also known as Northern Palace of the Haram Sara is an integral part of the Imperial Harem in Fatehpur Sikri. Most scholars say that this building was the residence of Akbar’s senior queens- Ruqayya Begum and Salima Sultan Begum.
This home of the renowned Birbal, the great wit at Akbar's court is a conjoining of two main architectural traditions of India – Hindu and Muslim. Here there has been no attempt to fuse these traditions; they are simply placed together in an elaborate medley. Varieties of ornamental carvings are displayed both on the inside and outside of the Palace.
Fatehpur Sikri, one of the monuments listed in UNESCO as World Heritage Site was built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar as his imperial capital. This fort is one of the must see tourist destinations in the city of Taj, Agra in Uttar Pradesh, India.
