"Red Fort, Delhi, India. Diwan-I-Am or dewan e aam, or the hall of public audience was used by the Mughal Emperors for holding Darbars and other state functions. Originally the hall was ornamented with gilded stucco-work and hung with heavy curtains, and under the marble canopy projecting from the back wall stood the throne of the Emperor, and the marble dais below the throne was used by the prime minister for receiving complaints and petitions. The panels bearing pietra dura decorations behind the marble canopy seem to have been executed by some European artist.
