Abdur Razzaq referred to the loftiest building in the Royal Citadel as the King’s audience hall. Remains of pillar-sockets and  bases show that it was originally a hall with hundred pillars. In front of the audience hall is a large enclosure , which was probably a general assembly area. According to scholars it was in this courtyard that public discussions and proceedings of the Vijayanagara court took place.
