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.

  • A beautiful red rock city that has been well preserved and the grounds maintained. The tiles are long gone, but the rock sculptures are a wonder to see. This is a site worth the visit.

  • Beautiful place. Quite big. Come with lot of time when visiting. It’s big and quite tiring and try to come early morning. Because it’s open so you will feel the sun heat a lot during afternoon time.
  • This is a very historical place. There are many different places here that you should see. The beauty of this place will fascinate your heart. I felt very good when I came here. The people here are also very nice.
