The name of this Deewan-e-Aam was taken with love not only in India but all over the world. And it was used to celebrate. Often Deewan-e-Aam.
It was kept empty to celebrate. And if there is to be any kind of celebration, the Deewan-e-Aam was celebrated with pomp.
And it is also said that in place of this Deewan-e-Aam, there was also a wall which was remembered with silver.
This silver wall was specially made by the artisans of Ahmedabad. The wall cost 100000 at the time it was built.
A lot of gold and silver items were also kept in the Deewan-e-Aam pulses. The people who came later also took him out but in spite of that his dalan and its walls are still very bright and beautiful.
A very nice mausoleum made of small 21 feet marble stones has been built in the Deewan-e-Aam.

People say and believe that such good things and such expensive things made inside this fort.
Those such good things not found anywhere else in the whole world.
Marble Sheets For King In (Red Fort Delhi)
To sit in the middle of the same wall, the king was made his throne, made entirely of marble stones, which was made very beautiful, and was very good.
Whenever there was a court for some reason, people used to sit in it and the king would sit on the marble seats and give his decision.
I am very keen to tell you that if we are in that place, we too will enjoy this thing, but this place is not yet intact, it is over. Many things that were built inside the Red Fort.
And when a more special court seemed to be for that particular purpose. even more expensive throne was arranged.
On which the king used to sit and give his decision to the people. While the earlier throne was also very good.
But the throne which was brought on a special occasion was very beautiful and very expensive, it is said that the whole was made of marble, which looked absolutely bright.
Hayat-e-Bakhsh (Red Fort Delhi)
On the pages of history, we also find that where there was a special place where Diwan-e-Aam had a king’s court.
There was a garden next to it. The garden which was known as Bagicha Hayat-e-Bakhsh, what the Mughal Emperor Raj used to do at that time, has now disappeared.
The texture of Diwan-e-Aam is very beautiful and the entire Diwan-e-Aam was made from marble. Instead of Diwan-e-Aam, it is designed to be approximately 90 feet in length and 67 feet in width.
Deewane-e-Aam was made so beautiful that the people who saw it used to appreciate it.
Above the roof of Deewane-e-Aam was made entirely of silver, which used to entice the heart to see.
That silver wall is not there anymore, later people took it out.
And above the roof of Deewane-e-Aam, four colors were made in all the four corners, which were painted with a completely bright color.
Which was very attractive and very beautiful to look at.
A canal was built in the middle of Deewane-e-Aam, that canal was named Nahar-e-Bahisht.
The Deewane-e-Aam was made so beautiful that the emperor said that if there is a paradise anywhere in the world, this is what it is.
There was a time when the diamond inside the Red Fort was also stolen.
And it was accused by the British also on Shah Jahan. This lawsuit was in the public eye for a long time. The Red Fort has also seen such days.
Friends, a canal flowed inside this Red Fort, named Nahar-e-Bahisht.
The one who was almost in the middle of the Red Fort went into the canal. The canal water was also applied in very beautiful colors.
Which greatly enhanced the beauty of Diwan- e-Aam and Nahr-e-Bahishta place of Red Fort.
Swimming Pool In (Red Fort Delhi)
Three large rooms were built inside the Diwan-e-Aam. Inside which a large swimming pool was also built.
From the pages of history, we find that cold water and hot water were arranged separately inside the swimming pool.Which was a very pleasant swimming pool. Special arrangements were also made to cool the water.
But about 1.25 lakh timber was used daily for hot water. And underneath that swimming pool were very good stone designed floors.
Which further added to the beauty of the swimming pool. At this time, that swimming pool is no longer inside him.
Perhaps the swimming bridge may have been broken. Or it would have been repaired.

When Aurangzeb’s rule came inside the Red Fort, which was built by Shah Jahan, he built a very beautiful mosque.
The name of that mosque was Moti Masjid. And it is said that Moti Masjid made of full marble, shining brightly.
Moti Masjid was also an identity in itself which added beauty to the beauty of the Red Fort.
It is said that the mosque was not built for the entire royal court, especially for a member of the king’s family.
And the door of that mosque was made of brass. Looking at the door it looked like it was a gold door while it was a brass door.
Meaning that it was made so beautiful that it attracted the hearts of the people. And the most special thing that was made in the mosque was the most beautiful.
The dome of the mosque was made of different types of marble stones which were shinier and more attractive. And in the eyes of the people, the mosque and even the palace were visible.
Friends, there are many such things which have been buried under the Red Fort as secrets.

And Maharaj Bahadur Shah Zafar who built the Zafar Mahal was the one who built this palace under his rule. And it is said that after some time, what made this palace a place of repose for the soldiers to bathe.
It also tells us that the earlier emperors who have gone to rule India thought more about their courtiers.
Scales Of Justice
Friends, there is another thing about which people know very little, even I did not know.
When I went inside the Red Fort a few days ago, I came to know about it and it was well known when I read history.
So, friends, we come to know that inside the Red Fort, a royal court was also installed, which was only for justice. Whose name was given the scales of justice.
Whenever the king of anything had to hear spades or someone should be punished for the crime of his punishment, the royal court was put in that court and justice was done in the scales of justice.
And it is said that his justice was liked so much that people loved it.
And there was the justice of the law, in the place where the king used to sit, on that place a special thing was made and on it there was also a picture of the scales of justice and there was a moon inside the scales of justice.
Which was the moon sword. The signs were made as if. The scales of justice are built on the moon.
Many stones and precious bright stones were also put in it which were very valuable.
And that used to make the red fort’s rumble more beautiful. Which was actually considered the beauty of the Red Fort. After that people also took him out.
There another place knew the name of Musaman Burj. That Musaman Burj built on one side of the Red Fort.
There built 8 domes on 8 corners. Which made from very precious stones and Nagina. The river Yamuna flowed outside the same Musamman Burj, which considered very good and pure.
The main door also built-in Musamman Burj. In which Maharaj first entered inside that gate through river Yamuna. And Maharaj used to enter this gate often.
Now I want to tell you a special thing in it that as many different types of palaces or swimming pools or any different category of houses built inside the Red Fort.
One common thing in all houses that all the colors used to paint with red color and only red color stones put in it.
The bricks used inside the Red Fort also rubbed with red color. Even the places which came in the vicinity of the Red Fort.
Such as the stones planted on the banks of the Yamuna River also planted red-red. And this thing had greatly enhanced the beauty of the thatch of the Red Fort.
There another place knew the name of Rang Mahal. Rang Mahal place for the particular emperor to roam. Also, the place built to a sit. And Special thing, the Rang Mahal’s roof build of silver.
When the British came, they replaced brass with silver. After that, the wooden roof replaced with brass. Which exactly silver color but it is wood.
What the Mughal Emperor used to do so effortlessly to cool the Rang Mahal. And special arrangements built to keep this special place cool. When the British came to that place, they started burning fire.
And its a very bad situation. Now even that place not there. There no much such place left, which created by the Mughal emperors at that time.
Another place which named Mumtaz mahal. It built a place for the queens to rest and the king also used to relax in it. Which built it very beautiful and special.
The palace is no longer there, but its memories are still in the minds of the people. A museum has now built inside that Mumtaz Mahal.
A very magnificent palace also built known as Asad Burj. It destroyed in 1857 but it repaired by the later king Akbar Sani and it again converted into a palatial palace.
From the side under the Assad Burj, there a canal called the canal of heaven. It used to flow under the Nahr-e-Bahisht Assad Burj.
Asad Burj one such place which considered to the most important palace among the three palaces built by the king. Nahr-e-Bahisht flowed under the Assad Burj which kept the palaces of the Asad Burj cool and it looked very magnificent.
This palace is no more, now it has also turned into ruins.
Jawaharlal Nehru slogan (Red Fort Delhi)
A lot of different types of buildings have been built in the Red Fort, which is now only in memories. Or in history.
When the rule of the British came, many of the palaces of the Red Fort broken even at that time. He also devastated and later the people did not repair the Red Fort so its beauty further reduced.
There are also places where the palace built earlier, now Chhabra has made for the Army forces there. And there has also a lot of space that broke in the British court.
After that, the first Prime Minister of India, known as Jawaharlal Nehru, Jawaharlal Nehru chanted a slogan. “Let’s go to Delhi” and it the first one resonated across the slogan that would take every citizen the country. I liked it. And this first slogan.
The first speech gives by the first Prime Minister India. After the Maharaja at the Red Fort.
Even after that, the visiting Prime Minister of India climbs the Red Fort and gives a speech about the independence of the country and people from almost corners of India gather to listen to the Prime Minister’s speech and everybody enjoys.
