Owner description: This tomb, built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal and many other Mughal architecture and garden complexes in India.

“A relic of the past”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

There was beautiful architecture and it was nice and peaceful in the tomb's grounds however I didn't find the grounds kept up in some areas. I guess it's just too large?

A beautiful mausoleum, in a style reminiscent of the Taj mahal in a little smaller scale.
