“Under Repair?”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

It looked like the whole place is under repair/renovation. Nothing for a traveller, just one building which is almost in ruins now.

“Quiet and different from other sites in Agra”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This poet's tomb tucked away down a quiet lane is a perfect place to escape the crowds. There were no tourists here both times I've been and the worn-down state of the place and the friendly and helpful locals add to the charm. View of the river spotted with buffaloes from around the back of the structure is another bonus. Also, the style of the interior is different to other sites in Agra. Not for everyone, but if you're searching for small, quiet and pretty, this is the place.

“You could give this one a miss!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Nothing spectacular here- but if you have 15 minutes after Itmadudaulah- you can nip by. They haven't worked as hard on looking after this one. It's more or less infested with slightly odd characters, but it's safe!!

“Work and tourists needed”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

It is in a rather neglected state and maybe some restoration work will attract further tourists and bring out its splendour once again. A mausoleum dedicated to the prime minister of Mughal emperor Shah Jehah and also a famous poet at the time.

Afzal Khan Mullah built this in 1639 with elaborate ornamentation, verses from the Quran and glazed tiles.

“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.
