This seven storeyed palace is the corner structure of a large quadrangle range of buildings on the west of the citadel overlooking the inner most. From every quarter of the town and citadel this building is seen to rise high above the surroundings. At present it rises to a height of five storeys or 97 feet in all, but a narrow staircase rises from the fifth to a sixth which does not now exist. It is said to have been far more extensive than it is at present. It must have been an adjunct to the whole of the palace buildings rather than a separate one in itself. It was once supposed to contain exquisite ornamentations and paintings, but there are now no traces of these except for some paintings in the stucco work of the ceilings of the different floors. The top of the building commands a picturesque and over-all view of the city, which well repays the toil of climbing.
