About Tomb of Mariam-uz-Zamani

The Tomb of Mariam-uz-Zamani is an enchanting red stone mausoleum standing in the middle of the beautiful Mughal garden. This is the place where Queen Mariam, the Hindu wife of Emperor Akbar and Mother of Jahangir is resting forever. The structure was originally an open pleasure pavilion and contains over forty chambers built by Sikandar Lodhi, and it still contains faint traces of paintings on plastered walls. Later it was converted into a mausoleum of Mariam- uz-Zamani. There is a rectangular structure with each facade, which extends forward and has a pointy arch flanked on either side by wings. The chhajjas protect the wings, and the duchhatti (mezzanine floors) are accessible by stairways. The Tomb is a Mughal patent with massive chhatris and chhaparkhats. The monument contains three tombstones; one in the underground morgue chamber, which is the grave, the cenotaph above it and another cenotaph on the terrace. Tomb of Mariam is a must visit place in the Agra along with Akbar's Tomb.
