  • It's one of important tombs in Agra but not much visited if you have spare time have a look on it and enjoy  more »
  • The mausoleum was in itself not much worth seeing but it cost nothing to visit it! The garden was watered and planted flowers, trees and at the edges, even vegetables. visitors were only a handful of local youths, who enjoyed most of sitting out in the garden.

  • Though this place is lovely it is very underutilized as a tourist attraction. Most people ditch Chini ka Rauza on their trip to Agra but I would highly recommend it to artists looking for inspiration ...  more »

  • No entry fees. Open from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm. Quite sad to see how a historically important monument is so poorly maintained. People, especially the locals use this more as a public playground or a park for recreational activities. The beautiful and intricate paintings on the walls are falling off. Currently undergoing renovations.
  • This building is also situated on the bank of yamuna river... but not well maintained.... The neighbouring is backward with less cleaning and sewer facilities... A small building is also situated near this fort named #kala Gumband... It is also less maintained... There is no tickets to see these forts...
  • The structure's architectural style is "unusual". This is because of the exotic architectural style in which it is built. It is "unusually plain" possessing a sultanate style unproportional dome.[4] Due to the inclement weather, the various types of enamel colors have worn away from the tiles. In the facades, the builders used earthern pots to reduce the weight of the concrete filling which was followed in Romeand Egypt.[2]
  • Very nicely architectures place. good to go with friends and family.
  • The place is in ruins and the people are destroying it. The archaeological survey of india should take it under their charge and restore it.
