Safdar Jang's Tomb Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Often described as the last masterpiece of Mughal art, this monument is the tomb of the prime minister (wazir) of the emperors who had the rank of Safdar Jang. Dating from 1754, the tomb has all the characteristics of Indo-Muslim mausoleums built after 1560, the prototype of which is Humayun's Tomb. Typical features include its location in the middle of a Mughal garden ( chahar bagh), a "garden divided into four sections" by canals and enclosed by walls; its imposing size; and the raised platform on which it stands, which creates a pyramid effect.
