For someone from South Asia, visiting the Mazar of the last Mughal Emperor is a unique treat and a privilege. It has a lot of pathos and immensely saddening history behind it. It’s a reasonably well maintained Mazar in the basement car park of the local masjid/mosque.

The Indian Mutiny (or the First war for Independence according to taste) chewed up this inoffensive poet and this is the last relic of him.

Located near the Shwedagon Pagoda, this mosque/shrine is an interesting part of Indian history. The building is well maintained and somber. There are three graves on the upper floor and the grave of Bahadur Shah on the bottom floor. It could be a quick visit on your tour of Rangoon. This grave is of the last Mughal emperor of India. Not much of territory when Bahadur Shah ruled, but he was the last of the Mughal rulers and it ended a chapter of Indian history. During the visit, the site sells some books on Bahadur Shah. Mr. Shah is also considered a poet and sufi philosopher besides being a monarch. So, this site is also considered holy. Be respectful on entry to the shrines and leave footwear at the steps. As empires are bound to crumble, this modest shrine is a metaphor of how one can fall from the heights of glory and nothing seems permanent in this world.

We walked to the tomb of Bahadur Shah Zafar II, the last Mughal Emperor, who was exiled in Rangoon by the British after the Indian Rebellion of 1857. Zafar's unassuming tomb is in a quiet avenue in Yangon not too far from the famous Shwedagon Pagoda. Zafar was not only the last Mughal but was a Urdu poet and is now revered as a Sufi saint. Worth visiting for those interested in history.

For more than a century the last Mughal emperor was almost forgotten - but a chance finding of his grave helped resurrect the legacy of a man revered as a Sufi saint and one of the finest poets in the Urdu language.
Last Moghul King Bahadur Shah Zafar was a noted Urdu poet, having written a number of Urdu ghazals.
The emperor was tried for treason, imprisoned and exiled to other territory under British control, in what is now Myanmar (Burma).
He died in custody on 7 November aged 87 - but his poetry lived on. The pen name he used, Zafar, means victory.

I felt very sad after visiting the Dargah of the Last Moghul Emperor of India. How he died in penury after being banished to Rangoon by the British.
A must-visit for every Indian visitor to Yangon.

Good place to visit and recalled how the great Mughul ended up. You can also pray in the mosque.

That's all for now
