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.
