Make your way to the Akbar Tomb Sikandra
Same as starting point
Visit the tomb of the Mughal emperor Akbar, an important architectural masterpiece of the Mughal era. This final resting place of the great Mughal Emperor Akbar is believed to have been built between 1605 and 1618. Located in Sikandra, a suburb of Agra, the tomb is surrounded by Mughal gardens around it which present a beautiful and cheerful facade.
Built entirely out of sandstone and white marble, Emperor Akbar himself oversaw the construction of this tomb until his death! The south gate is the largest, with four white marble chhatri-topped minarets which are similar to (and pre-date) those of the Taj Mahal, and is the normal point of entry to the tomb. The tomb itself is surrounded by a walled enclosure 105 m square.
The tomb building is a four-tiered pyramid, surmounted by a marble pavilion containing the false tomb. The true tomb, as in other mausoleums, is in the basement! As you walk around, you learn that the buildings are constructed mainly from a deep red sandstone, enriched with features in white marble. Behold the wonderful panel designs which are geometric, floral and calligraphic.
