Rajasthan - Fatehpur Sikri - The Panch Mahal (torre del vento)

Fatehpur Sikri is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Rajastan, India.


Panch Mahal: A five-storied palatial structure, with the tiers gradually diminishing in size, till the final one, which is a single large-domed chhatri. Originally pierced stone screens faced the façade, and probably sub-divided the interior as well, suggesting it was built for the ladies of the court.[20] The floors are supported by intricately carved columns on each level, totalling to 176 columns in all.
