AS already mentioned, the palace, with its gardens, &c., occupies the central block of buildings in the city being about half a mile in length. The principal front is seven or eight stories high, and is flanked at each end by a lofty tower surmounted by a cupola. Within are two very spacious courts, and several of smaller dimensions, surrounded by fully a dozen different palaces, communicating with each other by corridors or gardens. The large garden is extremely beautiful, and is kept up with much taste. The most remarkable of the palaces are the Diwdn-i Khas. or Hall of Audience, which contains a splendid oblong saloon, built entirely of white marble; and the Indur MehM in the garden, where levees and public receptions and dinners are held.
