This is the tomb of the most famous queen of Akbar. Some people also know her as "Jhodha". This is slight off the tourist circuit of Agra. Will take easily 3 hours of ones time, including travel from city.

This was not on our itinerary however we knew of her existence and asked our driver to go to her tomb. He admitted he hadn't been either. Its a beautiful compound and well maintained. The historical aspect is very interesting and the monument and garden beautifully maintained.

The tomb of Mariam Zamani the Hindu queen of Akbar is not a much frequented place in Agra. The tomb unlike most of the Mughal tombs surprisingly does not have a dome structure anywhere. The tomb is not maintained very well. Nonetheless one can visit this monument in Agra for its historical importance.

I wanted to pay my respects to Akbar's Hindu wife who was the mother of Jahangir. (I think of her as Jodha Bai because of the movie AkbarJodha, but historians give her a different name.) The tomb is in Sikander on the opposite side of the road, but near to Akbar's tomb. The traffic was terrible, but I was determined... More

There's no hustling and bustling. It has big lawns, great for lying down and taking some rest. The architecture is great. You can sit by the lawns and spend some quality time.
