About the walk

The capital of the Mughal empire, Agra was a perfumed garden whose architecture grew over time. The Tomb of I’timad-Ud-Daulah is one of the great architectural masterpieces of the city. Built by the Mughal Empress Nur Jahan for her Persian father I'timad-Ud-Daulah between 1622 and 1628, during the reign of Emperor Jahangir, this structure is an artistic symbol of passionate filial devotion and a statement of her power. The walk will uncover how the position of a mausoleum in Mughal India metamorphosed into its peculiar stylistic character, providing immortality not only to the deceased and to the patron, but to that particular time as well.

Join us to explore what makes this medieval wonder stand out as pioneering and far beyond its contemporaries with some fascinating stories. This walk will be an educational experience, introducing visitors to elements of Mughal architecture and planning in an exciting manner.

This guided tour is free.
