The tomb at Sikandara is an excellent piece of architecture. Red sanstone monument looks magnificent. Well maintained by the ASI in green area with parking and other facilities. Inside it is clean and peaceful.

Akbar’s tomb is in Sikandra - a short drive from the heart of Agra city. While often skipped by the tourist circuit, I highly recommend a visit. The sprawling gardens, the deers prancing on the property, the stunning design of the 4 arched gates that...More

The gates and the external decorations of the tomb are outstanding and majestic, I did not expect this since I hadn't seen any pictures before and the LP guide didn't focus much on this. The inside of the tomb did not do much for me,...More
