- Sheesh Mahal or literally translated 'Palace of Mirrors' was built by Nawab Faujdar Khan, in the year 1793. A treasured monument of North India, the Sheesh Mahal displays the architectural beauty of the Mughal period. The palace is named and famed for the intricate mirror work that covers the interior of this edifice. Tourists flock to its gates to soak in the grandeur of this lime and slate structure. The play of light during the changing hours of the day and their resulting effects on this eminent structure mesmerizes all who visit. What further adds to the mystic of the palace is the jail that hides within the palace complex: complete with a torture chamber where prisoners of the time were incarcerated, caged and tortured.
