About Tomb of Mirza Ghalib

The heart-touching verses and poetry of Mirza Ghalib have touched thousands of hearts over more than a hundred years. Considered the Shakespeare of Urdu literature, Ghalib called Delhi the soul of the world. The revered poet never had a grave and in his memory, The Tomb of Mirza Ghalib was built in proximity to Hazrat Nizamuddin shrine in Delhi. The tomb is unexpectedly small in comparison to the other royal tombs of Delhi. The grave of the poet lies inside a small courtyard with a simple iron gate. The grave is covered by a marble structure and fenced by walls. The courtyard also houses graves of the Ghalib's family. As you enter the courtyard, a long tablet engraved with a few words about Ghalib welcomes you. The famous Ghalib Academy, established in the honour of the legendary poet, is located right next to the tomb.
