  • Panch Mahal is situated inside the Sikri complex in Fatehpur Sikri. You need to get a ticket for entering inside the complex. You can also hire a authorized guide . It would be better to hire a guide for visiting this complex if you are interested in history and to know the place. Panch Mahal is a five story building inside this complex, but we could not go to the higher floors as the entry is closed for the same. There are several symmetrical pillars on each floor which adds to its charm. There are several historical buildings situated inside the complex and the architecture is superb. This place is a must see for a family vacation.
  • There's so much history, beautiful architecture and peace. If you read enough history to know about this place, you'll love to visit once.
