“Unexpectedly well preserved!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Khusro Bagh is a lovely complex of 4 tombs. They're all in this Mughal-Rajput architectural style. Probably on account of Khurso's mother being a Rajvanshi. The tomb of Khusro's sister is especially beautiful with lovely detailing on the exterior. It's like a mini Taj. Must visit!

We were two women and hence attracted a fair bit of attention. It doesn't seem to be a very frequented tourist site. There were lots of hangers on, the odd couple, and a family with kids when we visited. Two men offered to unlock the tomb door so that we could see the paintings inside. Didn't feel very safe, but would probably have been worth it. Maybe a good idea in a larger group.

“The other Tajmahal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Shahjahan has built three similar replicas of tajmahal you cannot enter this and its made of sand stone not a marble and i apologise if i did rise your expectations with the title. the way i saw was its a free entry opens until 8 pm.. a lot of staring young men once you get in and they will stop staring at you after a while.. so three tombs adjacent to each other. i dont see a door to go in.. probably there is to climb up but everyone i saw were on the first floor above but i was not able to find an entrance to go in.

“Fascinating pieces of architechture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

This place is a must visit for history buffs and people who like to visit tombs and mausoleums. This Mughal garden houses three major tombs of Prince Khusru (eldest son of Emperor Jahangir), his mother Shah Begum and his sister Nisar Begum. The work on the inside of the tombs are exquisite.

“Should not be missed- at par with the most renowned monuments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Khusro Bagh near the railway station is a wonderful place. The bagh or garden is pretty shabby for the major part but the three buildings inside are wonderful specimens of Mughal architecture. The locas flock in large numbers and the place presents a scene from a picnic spot. From the outside one can hardly understand the beauty of what lies behind the high walls. I feel the govt. should do more to promote the place.

“A forgotten place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This by far is a very beautiful tomb along with gardens built for Jehangir's first wife and his oldest son, Prince Khusrau and a princess. It is locate just next to the Railway Station and can be missed many times as it is surrounded by a high wall. I only wished it was maintained better as once you enter its walls, you will forget that you are in the heart of Allahabad.
