Constructed in 1570 A.D. by Emperor Akbar, Akbar's Palace
was built for serving as a home to the emperor during his
visits to Ajmer. Though not very massive, Akbar's Palace was
almost impregnable to enemy attacks.
The two thick walls that surround Akbar's Palace are formidable
structures. Akbar's Palaces' historic importance lies in the
fact that this fortified Mughal bastion served as a platform
for a historic meeting between Emperor Jehangir and Sir Thomas
Roe of the British East India Company.
During the British occupation of Ajmer, Akbar's Palace was
used as a munitions house and the Britishers nicknamed this
palace as the 'Rajputana Arsenal'.
A part of Akbar's Palace was converted into a museum in the
year 1908. Be charmed at the massive black marble idol of
the Goddess Kali. Also feast your eyes on several 6th and
7th century sculptures as you tour the Akbar's Palace in Ajmer,
