While not as well known around the world as the Taj Mahal, this beautiful sire offers very similar, awe inspiring forms of architecture that is rarely found around the world. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, this enchanting place is loved both by the average tourist, but also the locals.

This place is a must see for any one visiting Taj Mahal. I think that this structure is almost as beautiful as the Taj and had quite a lot of influence on the architecture of Taj. This place is very well maintained and good to visit even at mid day thanks to very well maintained gardens with huge trees. It... More

This, in some ways, was nicer than the Taj Mahal! Not as crowded and not as "secure" with metal detectors and security going through purses. We felt like the details of the buildings and the openness of the grounds really showed how much love went into building it. The colors are amazing and evening photos turned out beautiful!

The entire area around the tomb and the tomb itself were very nice, and I recommend visiting the entire area, not just the tomb. Also, if you're planning on/have visited the Taj, this tomb was one of the inspirations for the Taj, so its nice to see the similarities between the 2.

A must see as it forms part of the Moghul history and is a foundation start, prior to visiting the Red Fort in Old Delhi, the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort in Agra.

I went here on a week day, around 10.30 in the morning, there was no queue I could just walk in and enjoy the scenery. the grounds are well maintained, nice green lawns and some trees where you can hide from the sun when it get's too hot. Unlike the name suggests there is not just one tomb to go... More

Very beautiful and nice place to go for a visit. The maintenance of the building and its surroundings is great. It really looks like a Poor man's Taj! (But this is not negative)
