Moti Bagh, Agra
Monument > Tomb
The tomb is also known as the 'Baby Taj Mahal' as it is believed that much of the inspiration for Taj Mahal was derived from here. The main element of the structure is to resemble a jewel box in the middle of a lush garden. This Persian nobleman was Mumtaz Mahal’s grandfather and Emperor Jehangir’s wazir (chief minister). His daughter, Nur Jahan, who married Jehangir, built the tomb between 1622 and 1628, in a style similar to the tomb she built for Jehangir near Lahore in Pakistan. t basically show more

Something unique

The first Tomb of India to be made entirely out of pure marble and represents a major transitional shift of the Mughal architecture.
