Tomb of Akbar the Great, Uttar Pradesh

(240+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Historic Site
Witness the architectural masterpiece of Tomb of Akbar the Great, which the great Mughal architect made for himself with the help of his son. Historical turbulence plagued the region during and after the red mausoleum's construction, and Jats once plundered the intricate tomb, taking with them precious metals, jewels, and carpets. Upon your entrance through the gate, notice the high walls enclosing the lush garden and how the palace strategically occupies the middle. Observe the three-storey tomb with pyramid-like features and four white minarets standing at each corner. Note that foreign and domestic visitors do not pay the same entrance fee.

  • Great place for a full day picnic. Great piece of Mughal architecture, Akbar's telephone system at the corners and echo sound produced by clapping over the centre stone of every courtyard. Garden is also very beautiful.
  • Great place. world largest tomb area of Akbar. It's design mix up of hindu muslim & Cartesian . You can enjoy numbers of Hiran in the open field
  • Because of beautiful architecture, we cant understant how they built it when there are no resources of transport no machines to cut the pillars.
  • Beautiful, clean, silent environment. Well maintained maybe​ 4-5 times bigger than Tajmahal area. Parks covered with green grass, lot of trees, many deers, peacocks roaming in the grassed fields. Good place for time pass in serene atmosphere. We visited on 29th May 2017, it is hot these days.
  • Akbar's tomb is the tomb of the Mughal emperor, Akbar and an important Mughal architectural masterpiece. It was built in 1605–1613 and is situated in 119 acres of grounds in Sikandra, a suburb of Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.
