“Off the beaten track”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

A tomb to a poet we understood that there is no funding for restoration but there are traces of its previous grandeur. The local keeper explained its history very well. Take a moment to glance around the back. There on the river bank are buffalo and their owners with ladies collecting buffalo dung to make into fuel.

“A dilapidated place”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Sad that it is nothing but a dilapidated monument and it shows that he was not part of the royal family and it is a monument of a minister only.

“Long forgotten structure”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Chini ka Rauza houses the tombs of the minister of Shah Jahan and the architect of the Taj Mahal. Beautiful frescoes in blue and gold paint adorn the ceilings and the interior walls. This structure also has inscriptions from the Koran. On one of the walls, one can find the mural painting done by the great Vazir himself! Situated by the banks of the River Yamuna, offers good view of sunset and sunrise

“Condition very sad”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

So sad that this mausoleum is in such poor condition on the outside. You can get a sense how beautiful this must have been in the early years with some of the vibrant blue tiles that remain. Inside the paintings are still in pretty good condition. The "guide" inside you give you some information. He asks for money but doesn't overdo it like many others do, so I didn't mind giving something.
