Zenana Courtyard

Fatehpur Sikri (live map)

The apartments are located in the center of each of the four wings enclosing the courtyard. The north apartment, shown here, looks like it has two floors. However, the inside chamber is two stories high, and is overlooked by a "second floor" balcony whose outside wall is seen in this photograph.

In the overall building scheme, the forms of the north and south apartments are similar, and likewise the east and west apartments make a pair.
