Itmad-ud-daulah - Review
The tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah is a mausoleum built of white marble, which also consists of premises featuring luxurious gardens and composite buildings. The monument is situated upon a large garden. Around it are numerous water streams and pathways, and is contrasted with the surroundings. The structure consists of the main central build placed upon a red sandstone platform, and has a six sided minar on each of the four corners.
The exterior of the walls have marbles bearing embedded gems and rare precious stones such as the cornelian, lapis lazuli, onyx, jasper, topaz, etc., which are arranged into exquisite patterns of cypress trees, wine holders, flower boutiques and fruit designs. The walls look stunning by grace of the “jail” technique due to which light penetrates through them. Varieties of mesmerizing tones and shades of multicoloured gems have been used in the making.

Itmad-ud-daulah, Agra Reviews
Its a tomb, silent place. No beverages are allowed inside. If you are visiting Agra for first time try to reach here early by 8 and visit there first. Spend 1 or 1.5hr , feel the nature. You can also click awesome images and enjoy the views of the river Yamuna. You will feel the vibes of the river. You should not wear your footwear while going inside the tomb .
Good place with great architecture. Visit this place before going to taj else you won't take this place as highly as it deserves... It's quieter and less noisier than taj but pretty small when compared.... If it was in some other city it would be the top attraction there....

Okay to Visit but not so much to see as historical structure have. In summer this place became very hot so do not try to go. Basically it's a Makbara if you are a visitor of Agra and want to visit so this place is not for you, or of you are a traveller and want to explore something special and click some pictures so visit this place. Nice architecture of history if you are a history student so I must say you should definitely visit to know about mughal period.
Nice place.. very well maintained.. awesome creative work.. While brief info and history is displayed at the entrance, authorities should provide more displays giving detailed information to the visitors..
