About the walk

Reading about princesses, begums, and empresses of the Mughal empire, it is always fascinating to know about their contribution and accomplishments. Be it Khanzada Begum, Mumtaz Mahal, Nur Jahan or Jahanara Begum, the women were some of the most cultured and educated of their age. As for the physical evidence of Mughal ambition and glory, Agra is studded with examples of their vision, constructed in sandstone and marble.

Join us on this heritage walk around the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula, as we visit the monument built by Empress Nur Jahan, the Queen consort of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. We shall also talk about other begums and princesses of the Mughal empire and try to understand their contributions and influence on the city's cultural heritage.

This guided tour is free.
