Musamman Burj

Musamman Burj in Agra

Inside Agra Fort, Musamman Burj or Shah burj is a beautiful octagonal tower placed close to Shah Jahan's private hall Diwan-e-Khas. The tower looks out over the River Yamuna and is traditionally considered to have one of the most poignant views of the Taj Mahal.
The Musamman Burj is made of delicate marble lattices with ornamental niches so that the ladies of the court could gaze out unseen. The decoration of the walls is pietra dura. The chamber has a marble dome on top and is surrounded by a verandah with a beautiful carved fountain in the center.
