Climb a giant beehive to get a panoramic view at Golghar, a huge granary built by the British in 1786 to combat effects of the famine caused by Company Rule in Benghal. This modernist 29 m (95 ft) tall structures has a diameter of 125 m (410 ft). It was built in the tradition of stupas without any pillars and using a 3.6 m (11.8 ft) wide wall of thickness at its base. Capable of holding 140,000 tons of grain, the building has a staircase which spirals around it making it possible to climb at the top.
