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.
