The Capital of Agrabah Palace is an Agrabah location featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It first appears in the fifth episode of the first season.

The Capital of Agrabah Palace is based on the Emperor's Palace from One Thousand and One Nights, and the Sultan's Palace from the Disney film Aladdin.

History

Before First Curse

Jafar becomes the "vizier" of the capital province of Agrabah by using his magic to enthrall the Sultan of said province. The Sultan's daughter, Jasmine, grows concerned for her father, but when she tries to take him to a safer location, she is intercepted by Jafar, who traps her in a hourglass as it fills up with sand. She is saved when Aladdin, embracing his role as savior, rides a magic carpet to the royal castle, where he overpowers Jafar by snapping Jafar's staff in half, which also lifts Jafar's spell on the Sultan.

As the capital is still under threat by Jafar despite the Sultan regaining power, Jasmine walks in on her father attempting to sway several princes with the Crown Jewel of Agrabah, a dowry gift he promises to whomever marries his daughter. When she bluntly declares that there will be no engagement, the Sultan sympathizes with her wish to marry for love, however, he tries to persuade her to do her duty because they need a prince with an army to protect their land from Jafar. Jasmine insists what they need is a hero such as Aladdin, to which Jafar strolls in, implying that Aladdin has already been broken from too many battles and no prince can ever match up to him. Jasmine and her father are shaken by Jafar's display of power when he morphs one of the princes into a staff, and are left with fewer choices after he demands Jasmine's hand in marriage by sundown or he'll destroy Agrabah forever.

Jasmine grudgingly agrees to marry Jafar to save Agrabah and gives him the ring, but Jafar admits he never intended to marry her or destroy Agrabah and instead he wanted the ring to break the protection it holds over Agrabah. She watches, powerless, as Jafar takes her palace and her homeland away, not knowing he has trapped Agrabah inside the ring. ("A Wondrous Place")

After Third Curse
Jasmine and Aladdin team up with Hook and Ariel and find Jafar on Hangman's Island, where the princess learns from him about Agrabah's whereabouts. After defeating the sorcerer, Jasmine kisses Aladdin to evoke the power of true love, magically transporting Agrabah and the palace back to its proper place and the four heroes with it. Now that the crown jewel no longer contains the kingdom, Ariel asks for permission to keep it as a trinket. ("A Wondrous Place")

During Fourth Curse
Due to Emma, the Savior, losing her belief in magic, Agrabah and the palace are destroyed. Jasmine, Aladdin, and some other people of Agrabah are able to escape in time through one of the Mad Hatter's hats. ("The Final Battle Part 1")

After Fourth Curse
When the Black Fairy is killed by Mr. Gold, the Dark Curse ends and Agrabah is restored. Sometime after the forces of good win the final battle, Jasmine and Aladdin stand together on the palace balcony as they smile and look out towards their kingdom. ("The Final Battle Part 2")
