This building has fallen into disrepair. No tourists there and a few sketchy looking locals - didn't feel overly safe there.

It is also called "Chinese tomb". Though probably more correct to call it "Persian". In connection with the outside finish work by Afzal Khan, a scholar and poet from Shiraz. Until now partially preserved glazed blue tiles with exquisite calligraphic inscriptions, resembling the architecture of Persia.

Its just another structure with very little historic value to it. My driver said that it was after 5 years that he drove someone there. Its so scarcely visited.

The Chini ka Rauza is at the end of a lovely shaded lane. Unfortunately lots of the ceramic tiles have been lost over time but it is still possible to discern what this tomb looked like originally. There is lovely tile work along one facade and renovation are going on inside the tomb at the moment to restore some of... More

Slightly lesser known mausoleum fairly near the 'mini mahal', it took me a while to find this, but it's worth the effort. It's not in great shape, but the fading decor of the outside is unusual and worth seeing, as is the stunning domed ceiling inside. Annoyingly, there are 'archeologists' and 'experts' all around the temple that will pester you... More

Brown, rectangular building, the inside of the tomb decorated with now fading paintwork and inscriptions form the Quran. The tomb is adorned with different colors, blue, yellow and green tiles adding a spectacular view to it. Open every day, 24-hour a... More

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
