A putrefying of 67 meter red-brick watchtower, located just opposite to the Hussainabad Imambara is a splendor of medieval architecture. The structure shows a curios blend of French and Italian style structural designs. This amazing citadel was constructed during the time of Nawab Muhamad Ali Shah, but his untimely demise in 1840 blocked its construction. Famed as the tallest tower in India, Satkianda, is believed to be built as a mark of respect to Sir George Couper, a progressive Governor of UP.

Though the towering structure is named as Satkhanda, which means seven stories, it holds only four stories. This tower like palace was built for the purpose of viewing all the buildings in the town on those days. Though in ruins, Satkanda shows exquisite designs and miraculous structural lay out that makes a visit to this tower a life time reward.
