Execution room or Grannary - nobody knows for sure. However this monument stands pretty close to the Rani Bandh area in Bishnupur.

This used to be the execution site of the Malla kings. There are hidden chambers inside with deep wells and sharpened swords to kill the convicts. However in 2006 or so someone committed suicide jumping from its top and the site has been closed for visitors thereafter.

The mysterious structure which once was responsible for the disappearance of the evil doers still stands with an evil stance overlooking the Bishnupur slum area.
