its beautiful, however, arab architecture really doesnt exist since styles withing the arab world are very different , u can sum it up as "islamic" architrcture , which is mainly derived from persian and byzantine architecture and even thats too loose

Sheesh Mahal is Indo-Islamic architecture which is a fusion of Arabic, Central Asian and Persian elements with the local Hindu architecture.
