This is a monument built by Shah Jahan to commemorate offerings to one of his prime ministers. The man was known as a great scholar and this monument is built along the banks of Yamuna river. Now a days , this monument is not at all maintained. Too many children begging and a herd of buffaloes are all that you... More

Chini Ka Rauza is located about a km away from the Tomb of Itimad ud Daula. It is not well known and one can have the place entirely to oneself. The tiled work although damaged still offers clues to the original splendour of the monument built as a mausoleum for future use for himself by Afzal Khan, the Prime Minister... More

Even as a free site, it isn't worth visiting. Ruined mausoleum with too many kids begging for rupees or chocolate. The most interesting part of our visit was the heard of water buffalo on the river bank.

Chini ka Rauza is a funerary monument, rauza in Agra, India, containing the tomb of Allama Afzal Khan Mullah, a scholar and poet who was the Prime Minister of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. It has very nice view in the back, and a cow dung factory. :)

It is a very shady place. mostly empty no tourists. Children play cricket. men are sleeping in the compound as well as inside the monument. We did not stay... More

One can get an idea of what this may have been, but there is very little of the tiling left and as the technique has been lost, little hope for recovery.

This Persian-style tomb from the 17th century is both lovely and rather sad. It is true that most of the tiling has been lost but there is enough remaining on the eastern and western sides to give some sense of how wonderful this tomb must once have been. For tourists who have been to Iran, it will quickly bring to... More

No persian architecture is left still. Complete waste of time and money to visit this place. Nothing is left here. The walls have been replaced by cemented concrete walls.

Such a stunning piece of architecature in such a derelict condition. The colour combination of blue and turquoise is unique in India and one can see it only in Uzbekistan. Nothing is done by Govt /ASI to restore it. People are playing cricket making the wall as wicket ! Millions of Rupees is spent on Taj and not a single... More

Hidden in the green, next to the river stands this beautiful tomb of a polished and cultural Iranian who served India. The tomb is famous because of the glazed tile decoration on the exterior. Alot is ruined already thats true but still worth a visit. An old man will be your guide for a small tip. At the back you... More
