Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah, Agra

#4 of 294 in Things to do in Agra
When in Agra, pay a visit to Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah, an intricately decorated mausoleum, often nicknamed “Baby Taj” in comparison to its grandiose neighbor. The tomb was built in 1628 and is believed to have been the inspiration for the iconic Taj Mahal. Less crowded than its counterpart, the mausoleum boasts more delicate decorations, made with precious topaz, lapis lazuli, and onyx, as well as lace-like, intricate carvings in its marble walls. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Agra fast, fun, and easy.

  • Smaller and different from the Taj, it is nonetheless very nice. well maintained, it deserves a visit, especially since the price is ridiculous. It is very quiet.

  • Its a tomb, silent place. No beverages are allowed inside. If you are visiting Agra for first time try to reach here early by 8 and visit there first. Spend 1 or 1.5hr , feel the nature. You can also click awesome images and enjoy the views of the river Yamuna. You will feel the vibes of the river. You should not wear your footwear while going inside the tomb .
  • Good place with great architecture. Visit this place before going to taj else you won't take this place as highly as it deserves... It's quieter and less noisier than taj but pretty small when compared.... If it was in some other city it would be the top attraction there....
  • Okay to Visit but not so much to see as historical structure have. In summer this place became very hot so do not try to go. Basically it's a Makbara if you are a visitor of Agra and want to visit so this place is not for you, or of you are a traveller and want to explore something special and click some pictures so visit this place. Nice architecture of history if you are a history student so I must say you should definitely visit to know about mughal period.
  • Nice place.. very well maintained.. awesome creative work.. While brief info and history is displayed at the entrance, authorities should provide more displays giving detailed information to the visitors..
