About Chini Ka Rauza

Chini ka Rauza is a funeral monument containing the tomb of Allama Afzal Khan Mullah, a scholar, a famous poet and the Prime Minister of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. It is named Chini Ka Rauza because of the glazed-tile ornamentation in the tomb that is believed to be brought from China. This is the only structure in India made from Afghan style with Persian architecture. Allam Afzal Khan Mullah took a fancy to build his own mausoleum with elaborate ornamentation. With unique exterior and interior, this tourist attraction in Agra will be an artisan’s delight. The tomb is adorned with colorful embellishments in the brackets, a chajja with many balconies. The arches are ornamented with intricate designs having orange and blue tiles. Now the complex is mostly in ruins with only tomb left intact that is the masterpiece itself.
