Photographer's Note

The Diwan i khas is located inside the Lal qila (Red fort), which is a large fort complex located in Old Delhi. The Diwan i khas or the hall of private audience was used by the Emperor for giving private audience to the courtiers and state guests. The marble piers of the hall bear excellent inlay work and painted designs. The ceiling which was originally inlaid with silver and gold was painted in 1911. The celebrated peacock throne which was removed by Nadir Shah in 1739, once stood on the marble pedestal in this hall.  Source : the informative sign in the fort.
