Located in the isolated area of the city. This tomb is a must visit. Well maintained and architectural master piece. It gets very less number of visitors, so its a good place for photography.

Across the river from the Taj Mahal, the 'mini Mahal' is well worth seeing. The mausoleum is much smaller, but still extremely attractive and of a very different style to the more famous Taj.

Quaint and quiet little place. The architecture of the tomb is simple and majestic like the queen's should be. It is worth a visit if you are in Agra and you have already seen the major landmarks.
