The Red Fort, which now appears dry and deserted, was once the seat of power from where the mighty Mughals ruled all of Hindustan. Being assured of their might, the Mughals indulged in a life of luxury and devised an institution called Harem (Seraglio) an institution built by Akbar the great, rattled by Jehangir, disciplined by Shahjahan, simplified by Aurangzeb and corrupted by the later Mughals.

Discover how every Mughal emperor began his morning in the Harem and when attending to the duties of the empire, made sure that he leaves the ladies of the Harem under a Z-level security system of guards and spies Know how during these times eunuchs acquired a role of significance in the affairs of the Harem.

Find out how and why the Mughals got addicted to opium and wine, who made the Mughals heavy smokers and how Paan (Betel Leaf), came to define Mughal manners. Learn how the evenings of the Harem used to start. Know about the fragrances with which the Harem was scented, how the use of Attar started in the Harem and the lands the Mughals treaded to find those fragrances.

Visualize the luxurious interiors of the Harem where ladies were not allowed to walk on the bare floor and the fashionable dresses the women of the Harem devised and which are still in use today.

Know how each of the favorite women of the Mughal Harem used to get a chance to host the emperor exclusively for a night. Learn about the cleansing rituals women underwent before being placed in the emperors bed and what sort of drugs used to help the emperor pleasure multiple women in a single night. How the unsatisfied and lesbian women of the Harem used to satisfy their sexual urge and why the hospital attached to the Harem didn't value the life of the ladies of the Harem.

Finally they will tell you how they know so much about the Mughals and their lives.
