Interior of Saman Burj and the Scale of Justice.
“The Tasbih-Khana (‘chamber for counting beads for private prayers’) consists of three rooms, behind which is the Khwabgah (‘sleeping-chamber’). On the northern screen of the former is a representation of the Scales of Justice, which are suspended over a crescent amidst stars and clouds.” ( From Archaeological Survey of India (ASI))
“The Khas Mahal was used as the emperor’s private residence. The palace was divided into three parts namely the chamber of telling beads, sitting room and sleeping chamber. The palace was decorated with white marble and floral embellishments and the ceiling was gilded.”
