Baradari_banUnlike other similar structures, this beautiful baradari (twelve-door pavilion) was built by Maharaja Sher Singh, a son of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, as a two-storey structure; the lower level with eight doors and the upper with four. Said to be the site where Sher Singh held meetings with his courtiers, this pavilion stands amidst a square-shaped water reservoir built by Shamsher Khan, foster brother of Emperor Akbar.
Constructed in the Mughal style of architecture, steep steps made of nanakshahi bricks lead into the tank from an octagonal faced pier. It is said that the Baradari was connected to the Maharaja’s Palace through a tunnel.
