    Rang Mahal, Red Fort


    by WildFilmsIndia

    "The Rang-Mahal consists of a large hall, originally painted on the interior. Divided into six compartments by engrailed arches set on piers, the two apartments on its northern and southern ends contain marble dados. Over the walls and ceilings of these apartments are embedded tiny pieces of mirror. The building was part of the imperial seraglio. Through its centre along its length flowed the channel known as Nahr-i-Bihisht. In its centre is a marble basin, which is said to have been provided originally with an ivory fountain. Rang Mahal is the large and fine building bordered by the Mumtaz Mahal at the southern end of the zenana. In plan, the pavilion is three bays deep and seven bays wide. The bays are formed by broad, cross-shaped piers supporting a series of cusped arches and a flat roof. The bays at either end of the pavilion are enclosed into rooms.
