  • Always open and free, this mausoleum is the tomb of a Minister of Persian origin who was also a poet. It is certainly the grandest located in Agra but worth the visit as architectural curiosity because it is the first example in India of surfaces decorated with glazed tiles. Interesting.

  • Its an amazing piece of architecture which has been completely neglected by authorities. Very nondescript location and also frequented by local goonish boys I was told by a local that they will try to get into a fight with you and then mug you; so: 1. Go only with a large group 2. Do not reply the guys at all
  • A rarest example of Colored tiles wall work of KUSHUKARI art..but ASI did take proper care to protect this heritage..still a place to wathch the remainants..a must visit in Agra
  • This spot is neglected by govt. and arts on walls are wiped out. This is a small place near to the river side. It is not an attraction point for tourists anymore.
  • All the stone work on outside walls are gone only few remains are there to give you a sense of how it would have been at the time of commissioning. Poor job of maintaining and not popular with tourists.
