Ali Ghosh Khan Baoli

Ali Ghosh Khan Baoli, located on the premises of the Sheesh Mahal, is a historical monument listed by Archeological Survey of India as a monument of national importance. This dramatic three-storeyed octagonal staircase is a dry well (baoli) that was used by the royal ladies of the Sheesh Mahal to take their bath. In earlier times, this dry well supplied fresh water to the palace. The legend has it that the dry wells were inhabited by fairies and their water had magical and healing properties.
