towards the west of khas mahal, a beautiful edifice is visible, known as panch mahal having five stories. it is the beauty of this panch mahal building that it's every upper storey becomes smaller than the lower one it appers like a buddhist vihar in appearance.

This place feels little bit scary from the top, but one must experience it once in their lifetime as it feels amazing. The architecture of the place is great and it has faced many ups and downs, but it is still standing still. It lies in Fatehpur Sikri, few kilometres away from the main city. The red sandstones glazes its... More

Fatephur Sikri is breathtaking and is a must for anyone who finds themself visiting this part of India - which mean anyone going to the Taj Mahal should come here, its only about 40km between the two. It has innate beauty and its history - why it is here and why is was deserted is fascinating. I am repeating this... More

Visited after a trip to the Taj Mahal. It was very (VERY) hot, and we were here just past midday, so all of the red stone was very intense and warm. It might have been more interesting had I known more about it beforehand, which was my mistake, but I found our tour guide wasn't very informative. He had a... More

It was really amusing to know such nice and finesse of mogul architecture. Strength, design and robust structure has stood the test of time. Its really a heritage place built on small hill. Nice visit.
