Overview

A tour of Agra is not complete without a visit to the beautiful Tomb of Mariam-Uz-Zamani - the mausoleum of Queen of King Akbar, Mariam Begum. This tomb was built by Jehangir, son of Mariam and is a striking structure of Mughal dynasty which is definitely worth a visit while in Agra. The structure was originally an open baradari (pleasure pavilion) under Sikander Lodi, who built it in 1495 AD. It was adopted by the Mughals in 1623 AD and was converted into a tomb by making a crypt below the central compartment and remodeling it substantially.

Today, the mausoleum holds three tombstones. Apart from the actual grave of Mariam, there is a cenotaph on the ground floor and another on the terrace. The actual grave of the queen is located in an underground mortuary chamber, which is closed to public.

As you walk around the complex, observe that the tomb is decorated with façade of sandstones filled with floral designs. The chevron pattern with wine vases, geometric patterns and other common Islamic designs are found in this tomb. The columns are carved and have hexagonal bases. You can find carved friezes below the chajja. Underneath the tomb, you can find white marbles.
