4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The actual tomb is really 'below the ground'.... and just like that. Yet the area, starting from the entrance gate is just grand. A must visit when you take off from Agra heading to Delhi.. 
  • Beautiful place, with Great Plains full of animals. It is more beautiful on the outside that inside, as almost all precincts of this style
    show original
  • Great place to visit with a lovely temple and architecture. Quite peaceful and quiet for a heritage site just outside Agra, we went via our way to Jaipur! 
  • all mughals time monuments are damn peaceful even a pindrop is heard clearly ... good for having a peace and lone time apart from modern n fast world ! u get to know some incredible things about india and most important u ll be confused HOW WAS IT BUILT ?? no cranes no machines ... still a huge one
  • It is called Akhbar ka Makhbara locally. Nice place and cool arts on the gate, walls and roof. Tourist should visit this place.
  • Most ignored sites in Agra, if there's anything which should be counted after Taj Mahal then this is the one. Beautiful garden with deer, peacock and parrot, and best part is, that it's not crowded.
  • Sikandra is about 15 km from Agra, where emperor Akbar's tomb lies. If you are in Agra visiting Akbar tomb is very important to your visit. It has Deer park inside. 
  • Jalaluddin mohammad AKBAR miss you from jodha Akbar love story ap donoko salam ap log marke vi na marr sake sabke dil mein jinda hai apdono ka mohabbat ko salami
