Nice palace morning walk and ride Free entry चीनी का रोजा शाहजहाँ के मंत्री, अल्लामा अफज़ल खान शकरउल्ला शिराज़, को समर्पित है और अपने पारसी शिल्पकारी वाले चमकीले नीले रंग के गुम्बद के लिये दर्शनीय है। यह मकबरा शिराज के अल्लमा अफजल खल मुल्लाह शुक्रुल्लाह को समर्पित है। शुक्रुल्लाह मश्हूर पारसी कवि और विद्वान थे जो बाद में शाहजहां के प्रधानमंत्री भी बने। 1635 में बनी इस खूबसूरत मकबरे का नाम इसको बनाने में इस्तेमाल हुए पत्थरों के नाम पर पड़ा। यह मकबरा उस समय मुगल वास्तुशिल्प पर पारसी प्रभाव का दर्शाता है। इतिमद-उद-दौला से एक किलोमीटर से भी कम दूरी पर स्थित इस इमारत के ऊपर गोलाकार गुंबद है। इसे देखकर बताया जा सकता है कि यह आगरा की एकमात्र पारसी इमारत है। गुंबद की भीतरी छत पर तस्वीरों और इस्लामिक लिखावट के चिह्न देखे जा सकते हैं। गुंबद के ऊपर कुराने की कुछ आयतें खुदी हुई हैं।
This in theory was a good place to visit but on getting there, which is not easy to locate even by google maps. The cab service which we took was Ola and although it's off the beaten track and the resting place of Shah Jahan vizier is not a must see. The entry is free but the place is not looked after, the building is beautiful of the pictures seen but that's it. These pictures are deceptive as the place is lacking luster. The grounds are frequented by locals and it can be a unsafe place for tourists. I would not recommend visiting this place in the dark or anytime, till the government protects and maintains the place.
Its hard to get there. Not every taxi driver knows where it is. Actually nothing interesting. Good panorama view.
Entry: Free. Minimum Time to Explore: 30 minutes. This is not well maintained monument and also inside crowded area. Locality is not fully secured, so avoid visiting this place in Dark. It is not a must visit place , if you skip you won't miss much. But if you are really interested, you should visit this place. Identifying the exact location will be little problematic due to small roads.
