No persian architecture is left still. Complete waste of time and money to visit this place. Nothing is left here. The walls have been replaced by cemented concrete walls.
Such a stunning piece of architecature in such a derelict condition. The colour combination of blue and turquoise is unique in India and one can see it only in Uzbekistan. Nothing is done by Govt /ASI to restore it. People are playing cricket making the wall as wicket ! Millions of Rupees is spent on Taj and not a single... More
Hidden in the green, next to the river stands this beautiful tomb of a polished and cultural Iranian who served India. The tomb is famous because of the glazed tile decoration on the exterior. Alot is ruined already thats true but still worth a visit. An old man will be your guide for a small tip. At the back you... More
Chini Ka Rauza is a stunning tombwhich is very close to Taj Mahal in Agra. The tomb is dedicated to the Prime Minister of Mughal dynasty Allama Afzal Khan, the Mullah of Shiraz, during the tenet of Shah Jahan. The tomb is adorned with different colors, blue, yellow and green tiles adding a spectacular view to it. This encroaching structure... More
I visited this tomb with the auto rickshaw I rented for the afternoon. It's only a 15 in ride from Taj Ganj. It's clearly a place that is not visited by a lot of tourists but a recommended one. The interior of the tomb is impressive (an old guy will give you some info for a small donation) and you... More
This poet's tomb tucked away down a quiet lane is a perfect place to escape the crowds. There were no tourists here both times I've been and the worn-down state of the place and the friendly and helpful locals add to the charm. View of the river spotted with buffaloes from around the back of the structure is another bonus.... More
Nothing spectacular here- but if you have 15 minutes after Itmadudaulah- you can nip by. They haven't worked as hard on looking after this one. It's more or less infested with slightly odd characters, but it's safe!!
It is in a rather neglected state and maybe some restoration work will attract further tourists and bring out its splendour once again. A mausoleum dedicated to the prime minister of Mughal emperor Shah Jehah and also a famous poet at the time. Afzal Khan Mullah built this in 1639 with elaborate ornamentation, verses from the Quran and glazed tiles.
A tomb to a poet we understood that there is no funding for restoration but there are traces of its previous grandeur. The local keeper explained its history very well. Take a moment to glance around the back. There on the river bank are buffalo and their owners with ladies collecting buffalo dung to make into fuel.
