Admire the incredible design of the five-floored palace at Panch Mahal - Fatehpur Sikri. The palace is also referred to as "Badgir" or "wind tower" thanks to its design, which uses hundreds of columns to alleviate heat by increasing air flow. The palace has 176 columns in total, of which 84 stand on the ground level supporting the structure above, with certain design elements reflect those of nearby Buddhist temples. Explore the palace, which offers fantastic views of the fort that sits to its left, providing ideal photo opportunities.

  • A well maintained five storey building, always having a cooool air even at 45℃
  • Maintaining very badly. The so called guides are trying to canvas the tourists as the agent of the vendors inside the area. Not impressed
  • While the grounds were nice, of all the places we visited India the people here were the most relentless in hounding us to buy goods at the temple next door, pay for the bathroom, and other services. We were tricked by a local that said he wasn't a guide but worked for the museum only to have him eventually take us to his friends shop to harass us to buy something. It doesn't matter the beauty, we were so turned off by the hounding I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
  • 5 mahal near by taj mahal
  • Five storied building. Size gradul=ally decreases from bottom to top.
