From the Astrologer's Seat, I walked in a southwesterly direction toward the Panch Mahal. Here, of a summer's evening, the ladies of the harem would seek out the breezes that played along the ridge. Of five storeys, each decreasing in size, it is also known as a Badgir (Windcatcher). There were decorative screens to shield the ladies from the gaze of men strolling the mardana. These apparently disappeared after the site was abandoned. The structure is remarkable for the variety of designs applied to the pillars. ranging from fleur-de-lys to bell and chain. The ground floor consists in 84 pillars, while the second has 56. The fourth floor features beautfiully latticed balustrades.
What should be noticed particularly is the overall structure that reappears in the Mausoleum of Akbar At Sikandra. And yes, I will upload photos from that remarkable complex in the weeks to come.
