This 5 storied structure is a living example of Indo-Islamic blend in Indian culture and tradition. Built in classic Buddhist architectural style, it stands on a western line of the courtyard. Primarily used for relaxation and entertainment purposes, it is a Badgir, the Persian wind tower for ladies of the harem as an observatory to cover the queens and princess on the top terraces enjoying the cool breezes and watching splendid view of the Fatehpur Sikri.
The structure is so designed that each storey is pillared and smaller than the other as you move upwards. The 84 columns support the ground floor and the uppermost domed floor has 4 columns. The whole structure is very airy and was fashioned to give a respite from the scorching summers of Agra.

Very beautiful place! Monument are in really great shape! Very well maintained! All the monuments are very nearby which can be covered in half day or as less as 2 hours! Entry fees are there at every monument!
Fatehpur and Sikri are lovely places to visit and spend time. Could see blend of Hindu Muslim Christian architecture built by Akbar representing his three wives from different religion. Minimum one hour is needed for each place and even more based on your interests. Nice place for photography.
Very nice place. You will have an excellent experience. Anyone visiting this place for the first time, please take an approved guide. Guide will be costing Rs 450- 500. Please bargain if possible. Its the home place of Akbar and his 3 wives.
A historical city made by Akbar..what can be wrong here? Nothing. It's really huge and I couldn't see the whole thing in one day. But it's a lot of hustle bustle and guides cost too much, they don't even deserve that much..Otherwise it's a decent place to visit, I'd suggest to go during off seasons (summer) and not take a guide.
