The first three storeys included 80 archways with the Doric columns on the ground floor, Ionic on the 2nd floor and Corinthian on the 3rd floor. The 4th floor was in form of a wall with the rectangular windows and corbels supporting 240 piles which held a huge awning to protect spectators from sun or rain.
