This is a 2 storeyed structure. One can notice that this is a blend of Indian and Islamic architectural styles. Interesting part of this building is the ceiling which consists of a number of vaults and domes symmetrically arranged.The central bay has plain flat coffered ceiling decorated with a lotus bud at the centre. Out of 9 pyramidal sikharas the central one is the tallest. This is also known as chitrangini mahal.
This long and lofty building has 11 chambers with dignified entrances. The center one is specially decorated and big. Probably the musicians and the associated band troupes had been using this during ceremonies involving elephant processions.
