Tomb Of Akbar The Great - Review
The Tomb of the Greatest of the Mughal Emperors- Akbar is a very grand Mughal structure, which was built in Sikandra. Akbar himself had started the construction, and it was completed by his son Jehangir. The Southern Entrance to the Tomb is the largest gate, adorned by four decorated minarets, which are built of marble. The tomb has four storeys, with a marble floored courtyard on top which bears the model tomb of the memorial. This structure looks like a pyramid, with the three lower storeys built of red sandstone. The actual tomb lies below this place. The storeys are geometrically square, with small projections on the sides having marble roofs.
The main central courtyard is surrounded by arched structures, and a square structure is situated at the centre, which bears the cenotaph in a white marble. The main build of the Tomb is of dark red sandstone, which has decorations of black slate as well as white marble inscribed or embedded within it. The engraved panel in the walls exhibit decorations mainly in Quran calligraphy and floral designing patterns. Undoubtedly, it is a fine example of Mughal architecture in India and certainly worth a visit.

Tomb Of Akbar The Great, Agra Reviews
Must visit for those who would like to pay tribute to Akbar the Great, an empire builder and a visionary of that age who stood for peaceful coexistence when no one knew the word "secularism". Serene place with beautiful lawns where one can see deer and singing birds. The place is not too crowded as it is a little outside the city and it is a pleasure to visit for people of all age groups. Amazing architecture with a lot of history. Ideal place to visit in a cool afternoon. I'd recommend a guide, look for govt. approved ones and prevent being nabbed by local guides who charge exorbitantly and tell you half the story.
Antelopes graze in the lush pastures as you enter which was a pleasant surprise. I was blown away by the lavishness and ornate stonework, different coloured marbles and patterns. The tombs itself when you enter has the most amazing roof I've ever seen full of colour and representations like the tree of life. This is one place that is great for kids, families, tourists, anyone that wishes to visit. A true gem of India.

No words for this place I can explain. It's one of my favourite place because there was some antelopes,Monkeys and Beautiful Peacocks. I love those animals and the sound of peacocks,It gives you relax . I visit this place above 15 times. I only say that all those person who don't visit it ,They must go.
Tomb of Akbar! Beautifully constructed by the old people. Perfect place in the are to spend some quality time. you can go for walk in the morning and in the evening also. you are not allowed to bring water bottles. you need to buy ticket. guards are not helpful. even the walls are so dirty by the people"s name which is a really bad thing by the people.
