Diwan-i-khas or Hall of Private Audience is located in the northeast area of the majestic complex with a giant and splendidly engraved pillar in the center. The platform positioned in the middle of the hall is attached to the huge pillar which was actually the main seat of the king whereas the diagonal galleries are supposed to be the seat of the ministers and aristocrats who used to come here for entertainment. Nevertheless, since the galleries of the hall are very narrow to facilitate proper accommodation to those who supposedly come here for entertainment, therefore it is also said that this hall was actually used as a storehouse to store jewels of the royal family. As per Abul Fazl, Akbar had a total of three treasuries and amongst them one was generally used to store the jewels and other such valuables.
