Window to the world?

One of the gates into Mughal Emperor Humayun's Tomb has this balcony under which all visitors have to pass by. There is no mention of what it was used for. Hardly likely that it was a watch-tower or a guard house. It seemed more like a viewing perch (in a tomb?!).

The simplicity of the design and the wide open space in it appealed to me. I did look for a way up to the balcony, but it had been closed off.
