About the walk

The Shivpuri Cenotaphs comprise a formal Mughal garden constructed under the rule of the Scindias, and the Chhatri is one of the spectacular monuments that stands as a fine blend of both Mughal and Hindu culture. 

The Hindu-Islamic fusion is such that there is a Mughal garden in the backyard that houses the majestic royal tombs of the Scindias. These tombs are surrounded by huge trees, green orchards and verdant bushes displaying Mughal architecture.

The cenotaphs also stand as a testimony to the history of the Scindias and other known facets of the Scindia dynasty.

This guided tour is free.
