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.
