Photograph of the Khas Mahal, Agra from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections taken by W.Caney in the 1880s. The Khas Mahal (private pavilion), part of the Fort-Palace Complex at Agra, was built in 1636 and stands on a terrace in between the River Jumna and a formal garden. There are two pavilions on either side of the Khas Mahal with 'bangla' roofs, a design resembling the curved thatched roofed huts of Bengal. The large quadrangle facing the Khas Mahal is the Anguri Bagh which was laid out in geometric flowerbeds and terraced walks radiating from a central stone platform. This is a view looking eastwards across the Anguri Bagh towards the Khas Mahal.
