Overview

Hoshang Shah's Tomb is regarded as India's first marble tomb constructed to honor Hoshang Shah. The tomb was constructed in the 15th century and was so beautiful that it impressed Shah Jehan, the architect of Taj Mahal! It has been said that Ustad Hamid had a great association with the team who constructed Taj Mahal.

The main sarcophagus of Hoshang Shah is carved in the form of a casket with receding bands and with a mihrab molded at the top. There are other graves also below the dome, three of which are in marble. The interior is plain but for the ornamental moldings such as the miniature arches with blue enamel background running all along the rim of the dome.

Mandu is the ideal destination for exploring history and the true culture of India and you can begin your search from here as Hoshang Shah's tomb shows the involvement of Afghan culture in the art and sculpture of ancient India.
