Description: This hall of entertainment, in an exquisite palace Shah Jahan had built in the Red Fort, is decorated with a splendid fountain in its centre, of marble inlaid with semi-precious stones. The water ran away through channels to cool the different rooms of the imperial quarters. Unfortunately troops were stationed for [a] long time in the fort and removed the stones from their settings.
