Antecedents of the forms of mansions and semi-public buildings associated with Mughal architecture are seen decades earlier in Bayana. Examples surveyed and discussed include the Governor’s Mansion in the Fort, where architectural restraint is evident, to befit the status of the owner; a religious structure in Bayana town, possibly a Sufi khānaqāh; the La‘l Darwāza, a gateway in the Lodī garden city of Sikandra; the Imārat-i Bādgīr in the Fort (the Pavilion of Muḥammad Bakhshī) a forerunner of the multi-tiered pavilion of Fathpur Sikri; and two Jāt mansions, one in the Citadel and the other outside Bayana town.

Keywords:   Mughul architecture, khānaqāh, Lodīs, Sikandra of Bayana, Muḥammad Bakhshī, Fathpur Sikri, Jats
