The Mussaman Burj, also known as the Samman Burj (Jasmine Tower), is one of the structure flats located on the southern part of the Agra Ft. The Ft was constructed by the Mughal Emperor Akbar (r.1556-1605) between 1565 and 1573 on the western financial institution of the Stream Jumna. However, most of the major structures within were designed by Emperor Shah Jahan (r.1628-58) between 1628 and 1637. The Mussaman Burj is a two-storey pavilion to cap it by an octagonal in shape copper-domed cupola. The pavilion appears on a huge round bastion increasing from the fort walls, providing spectacular opinions over the stream. It is highly designed with designed stone flower sections, pierced stone displays and mounted pietra dura perform.
