Sangi Dalan is the remains of a palace, which was constructed by Raja Maan Singh. The palace was made up of marbles. The palace was built during the time period between 1580 and 1600 A.D. This place is at the walking distance from station. It is said that for the matter of safety queens used to walk 12 km through an underground pass from Jama Masjid to here for the sake of taking bath in river Ganga. But instead of preserving those underground tunnels they were completely closed under ignorance of the admin. The place is changed to a small park removing remain-ants of the structure. But still the sculptures and black stone entrance impart the essence of architecture of those times. This structure is stretch over a length of 300 mts at the bank of river Ganga. In the absence of its own administrative buildings the government has been using these monuments as civil court, ' Rajmahal
Rajmahal
police station' and ' Rajmahal
Rajmahal
jail'. So it was not possible for a normal citizen to visit the whole structure. But recently civil court has moved to a new building.
