It has a square design, with a long and wide ramp paved with stone slabs (khurra) and upright bricks, and stepped ghat. The walls of this structure feature four double-storied towers having an octagonal design. The top storey of these towers boasts of Mughal architecture, with an octagonal spire with brackets and pillars.

The corner domes of this place have a spherical design while the one on the sides have an oblong design.

At the time it was built, this reservoir had 12 towers, but today only eight can be seen.

The water collected in this reservoir was used during dry seasons for irrigation. The terrace on the top floor is accessible through a wide red sandstone stairway, located on the southern side.

The term Victorian architecture refers to a number of styles of architecture, which was primarily used during the Victorian period. These architectural styles were quite popular during the period of mid 1837 to the beginning of 1901. This period marked the rule of Queen Victoria and was named after her.

The Victorian era of architecture, was marked by a number of styles, such as Renaissance Revival, Neo-Grec, British Arts and Crafts movement, Italianate, Gothic Revival, Jacobethan, Neoclassicism, Industrial architecture, Painted ladies, Queen Anne, Stick-Eastlake, Romanesque Revival, as well as Second Empire.

There have also been Folk as well as Shingle Style Victorian Houses. As it is, the names of the architectural styles, apart from their adaptations had varied between the countries. Several homes merged the elements of various styles and therefore are not easily discernible as one particular style. In the United States, highly decorated houses have often been addressed to as gingerbread houses.

Some of the most prominent Victorian era cities include Richmond, London, Toronto, Boston, St. Louis, Louisville, Saint Paul, Galena, Nelson, Sydney, Melbourne, IL, Galveston, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Glasgow, Kolkata, Mumbai, Pittsburgh, Manchester, Philadelphia, Grand Rapids, as well as New Orleans.

Many of us use our gardens as a space to play around with our various hobbies. These hobbies are notorious for being dropped, temporarily left to the elements. Waste and clutter can become a big problem. It’s the kind of problem that, if neglected, just seems to compound on itself until you get to the point that it’s overbearing. One of the most restricting clutter issues you can have at home, is yard clutter. Many people will abandon rusty bikes, bags of roughage and leaves, motors and a host of other bits and pieces to the wind and rain. Of course, the primary issue you’d think is the fact that the rubbish is there. But, when you consider how dangerous it can be to yourself or children playing in the garden, the waste begins to look less like an inconvenience and more like a problem.

Outdoor waste can pose a serious risk to animals and people alike. Every year across the UK and in London, abandoned waste in gardens accounts for hundreds of thousands of pet injuries. Dogs and cats cut themselves on the rusted gears of that old bike lying beside the garage, or choke on plastic from the bin liners filled with branches and leaves. There have even been incidents of animals injuring themselves after tearing open bin liners, cutting themselves on tins and plastics. If this neglected waste poses a risk to the animals, even more so can it injure people. Getting cut on a jagged piece of rusting metal in the garden can not just cause a deep and serious wound, but transfer bacteria and infection.

That said, many of us are far too busy to even think about getting rid of waste. Whether in the garage, in the garden or in the house. Our busy lifestyles get in the way. Maybe it’s an old car you need removed and scrapped, or your overgrown back yard is full of bottles and other dangerous items. The thought of tackling these problems can be difficult. The good news is that whether you are looking a house clearance in London, or a garage clearance elsewhere, there are thousands of companies that can help you. These companies tend to deal in other areas to, like Clearance Team deals in probate in London. These companies do the full works, legally and safely, at affordably reasonable prices.
