Sikandra - Agra


Sikandra, the last resting place of the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great, is on the Delhi-Agra Highway, only 13 km from the Agra Fort. Built in 1613 A.D., the mausoleum of Emperor Akbar is the perfect blend of Hindu & Islamic architecture.

The tomb has four-storeyed red sandstone minarets displaying wonderous inlay work of marble on the four corners of the building. Other tombs on this floor belong to Shakrul Nisha Begum and Aram Bano, the daughters of Akbar. The ornamental arch and square pillar on the second storey looks unique. The third and fourth storeys also have identical arrangement of arches supported on pillars and chhatris adorning the facades.
