Description

The city of Agra flaunts itself as being home to some of the finest architectural marvels in the country but rarely does anything top the stature of the Itmad-ud-Daulah’s Tomb. The tomb, just like every other architectural structure in Agra, has immense historical significance attached to it. The tomb was commissioned by Nur Jahan, who was the wife of Jahangir. Nur Jahan marked it in order to pay due respect to her father who was given the title of 'Itmad-ud-Daulah'. Hence, the name of the tomb is such. Coincidentally, Mirza Ghiyas Beg ('Itmad-ud-Daulah') was also the grandfather of Mumtaz Mahal whose tomb is placed in the Taj Mahal. 

 

Despite such historical importance, the tomb's rise to fame mainly lies with the fact that this tomb was the primary inspiration behind the great Taj Mahal. This single information is so influential that it has earned the tomb the title of 'Baby Taj Mahal'. Tourists flocking to get a glimpse of Taj Mahal also attempt to witness the seminal influence behind it. But Itmad-ud-Daulah’s Tomb doesn't get bogged down by the massive metaphorical shadow of the seventh wonder of the world. This incredible piece of art also has virtues that enable it to stand on its own. Many people are of the opinion that the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah with its elegant marble lattice screens and royal domes is the more refined and finer piece of architecture among the two. 

Itmad-ud-Daulah’s Tomb also happens to be the first of the many legendary tombs that were erected on the banks of the river Yamuna. The ancient tomb still stands today as the testament to the glorious example of Mughal architecture. If you have Agra in your travel list, you should definitely make it a goal to visit this legendary tomb while exploring through the city. Believe us, you won't be disappointed
