Same as starting point
There’s so much more to Agra beyond the Taj Mahal and this ticket takes you to one of the most beautiful monuments built akin to the stylings of the Taj. Visit Itmad-ud-daulah also known as ‘Baby Taj’ and this is the first Mughal structure made with marbles by Nur Jahan, mother of Shah Jahan (builder of Taj Mahal)! This exquisite marble tomb was made by Emperor Jahangir's queen in the memory of her father Mirza Ghias Beg during 1622-1628 A.D.
Built entirely in white marble and inlaid with semi-precious stones, this mausoleum exhibits a strong Persian influence. This monument is considered the inspiration for the world wonder, Taj Mahal. However, the tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daulah is a more delicate artwork with marble lattice screens and fine carvings.
Walk around and discover Chine khana decorative scheme which is a façade look, which makes a vessel or bowl look like it is filled with fruits or flowers! This decoration can be seen in many parts of the gates of Itimad-Ud-Daulah tomb. The marble mesh works of Itimad-Ud-Daulah tomb are considered more delicate than any other structure of Agra, including Taj Mahal.
