(4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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. Wander around at your own pace, or hire a guide to learn more about the rich history of the site.
