This building houses the tomb of Abdul Rahim Khan-e-Khana, who was Hindi poet in the service of Akbar the Great. Like the nearby Humayan’s Tomb and other important Mughal era garden tombs, this building is built using red sandstone. Stylistically, it similar to other early Mughal Indo-Islamic buildings built to a square plan and highly symmetric all round. So much so, it looks a lot like the tombs of both Humayun and Safdarjung.

Much of the building is currently covered up due to renovations, but they still charge full price for entrance. Since much of the exterior is covered up due to scaffolding and sheeting, it’s not worth going to see it under the building works are completed

Not in a good shape , architecturally it is a beauty which you can appreciate only from close quarters . Now it is being restored and after that tourists will love to know about one of the main and revered poet Abdul Rahim Khan I Khanna .

This is a lovely tomb but not at it's best shape. It's great that they're working on it to restore. Beautiful garden surrounding the tomb itself. It's a hidden gem from the main roads. Definitely worth a visit.

Having grown up in Nizamuddin could see the tomb from our roof. We used to go there to play in those days. The tomb was run down and neglected for as long as i can remember. It is where he was burred and all the stones etc were taken away from this tomb. Can still see some faded art on the walls. On the garden level once can see many graves along with some kind of tunnels. Never knew what or where they lead. Some had grills protecting them. Maybe just a storage area.... But nice garden around it. If around in the area then can check out the Humayun tomb which is just under 5 min walk from the back. But noways i think the back side has been closed. Better to take the main road. Nizamuddin Dargah and not to forget the Famous Karim's in Nizamuddin for lunch or dinner. Lots of places to visit around. Delhi Zoo, Old fort, many attractions are just around the corner.

Awesome location, near Humayun's Tomb. Best time to visit is during winters as the place gets good sunshine. You can relax in the gardens or can have some fun activities with friends and family

Abdul Rahim Khan -i Khanan was a poet in the Akbar`s court & was considered a Navratna along with other 8 notables who became very famous in various fields in their lifetime.He was also student of Hindu philosphy & religion & the famous Hindi poet Tulsidas bestowed praise in his poems referring to his humility while offering alms to the poor.

He built a tomb for his beloved wife in Nizamuddin on the Mathura road in 1598 & on his death he was also buried next to her.The present tomb is in a highly dilapidated condition but is now being restored to its past glory with the financial help from the religious leader Agha Khan & the Inter Globe corp.
