Anup Talao

Fatehpur Sikri (live map)

The Anup Talao ("Matchless Pool") occupies the southern half of the mardana. The square platform in the middle of the pool is connected to the courtyard by bridges, and was probably reserved for Akbar's personal use. The tall building in the background is the Panch Mahal (previous page).
