The second lower down has six turrets and the third, five. These turrets are called ‘marhis’ by the locals, and are used by them for sitting upon in the cool of the day or for retiring to after bathing in the Ganges. They are of stone and connected together by walls and stairs of the same material. Before the Scindia Ghat could be completed, the masonry began to sink. A temple to the left of the south turret is rent from the summit to the base and the entire building is so dilapidated, that it looks as if it had been shaken by an earthquake. The ghat itself and also the stairs leading up to the top of the huge breastwork uniting the two largest turrets, exhibit an immense rent which is carried down to the very base of the ghat. The breastwork, likewise, together with the turrets, is out of the perpendicular and has a remarkable appearance. In some places the stones are more than two feet apart. The people residing in the neighborhood say that the ghat has sunk some ten or twelve feet in all, and that, inasmuch as stair after stair continually, though slowly, vanishes, they know that the subsidence is still going on. The ghat was built by Baija Bai, the same lady who erected the colonnade round the Gyan Vapi well but it is not yet completed.
The area above the ghat is home to several holy and famous shrines. This area is called as Siddha Kshetra-Field of Fulfillment. This place holds immense importance in Hindu mythology as Agni Dev or Fire God was born here. Hindu devotees gather here and propitiate god Vireshwar (god of heroes) to propitiate to get boon for a son.
