Owner description: This tomb, built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal and many other Mughal architecture and garden complexes in India.

About 250 RPS to go in, it was definitely worth it and is a great way to see an amazing UNESCO site.

A really nice place which has a similar feel as Taj Mahal, but not as grand. A must visit to experience the legacy of India. It's not very difficult to get to once you're in Delhi, do make time for it, you would not regret it.

Lovely temple in the same style as the Taj Mahal but built in red. There was beautiful architecture and it was nice and peaceful in the tomb's grounds however I didn't find the grounds kept up in some areas.
