About Maqbara of Saadat Ali Khan

The Maqbara of Saddat Ali Khan was built by Nawab Ghazi-ud-Din Haider and is famous for its brilliant artistry. The Maqbara was meant to serve as a mausoleum for Nawab Saadat Ali Khan, father of Nawab Haider. Built in the Indo-Islamic style of architecture, the walls of the building are done up with fine stucco work done on it, complete with turrets and a huge dome which is further topped off with an inverted guldasta over it. The guldasta is another piece of work, topped with a pointed, narrow rod which aims straight at the sky. The floor of the building is laid out with black and white marble in a chequered design. The spacious walls are interspersed with several arched doors and windows. The walls are built with the famous Lakhauri bricks. “Had this Maqbara been built with white marble, it would have transcended the beauty of Taj Mahal’, stated the famous historian, Mr. Roshan Taqui, while analyzing the architecture of this place.
