Shri Siddh Vijay Ganesh Mandir

Presently known as the Turkish Bath, it was not at all built for the purpose of being a Hammam. It was built by Emperor Shah Jahan as a Summer Palace which in English literally means the Glass Palace. This kind of mirror designing as a form of Byzantine art and the glass to make thgis palace was completely imported from Haleb in Turkey. The floors of this palace are made completely in marble and this is one of the remaining most beautiful parts of the Agra Fort. This is also the place where the emperor used to hold his extremely personal meetings in which only selected people were allowed to enter. There are mirror works on the walls, ceilings, windows and other places which look beautiful if candles are lighted inside. The stucco relief base with the mirrors in geometric, floral and other patterns look extremely beautiful.
