Akbars Royal Bathing Chamber- Delhi, India 

Known as Akbar the Great, Akbar is most famous for creating harmony between the Muslim and Hindu people. Rather than forcing Hindu’s to convert to Islam, he accomodated them by taking part in their festivals, learning the languages and removing taxes placed on non-muslims. 

He was also the grandfather of Shah Jahan, the Mughal Emperor who built the Taj Mahal.
