Itmad-ud-daulah, Agra Reviews
This is back of famous monument. I am sure in earlier time this must be a great place to see the glory of old Yamuna River.
Superb marbel work in design. Intricate art in walls and floor. To me the overall beauty (design and work) is much more than the Taj itself
Really beautiful place, very nice mosaics and some carving. The place really gleams, looks like its had a good clean.
Beautiful and serene place. Compared to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, this place has hardly any tourists which makes for a nice change. Beautiful gardens and tiles.
As buildings go, this is massive and has ethereal beauty. As Mughal buildings go, this is a small little place. But it is a must stop for anyone coming to Agra. Overlooking the Yamuna river, it is serene inside the complex, and the main building is simply breathtaking. It is hard to imagine that the tomb is of just a minister rather than a king. Although the said minister was the father of an empress, and the grandfather of another empress.
