Tomb Of Mariam Zamani - Review
Mariam-uz-Zamani, today also known as Jodha Bai, was the Hindu consort of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and a Rajput Princess of Jaipur. This tomb was built by her son Jahangir. First constructed as a pleasure garden in 1495, it was converted into a tomb in 1532. Of all of Akbar's wives, her tomb is nearest to him. On the ground floor there are forty chambers and the cenotaph of Mariam. The beautiful building is carved from red sandstone. The architecture is greatly appreciated for its combination of Hindu and Muslim styles. The tomb is set inside of a serene garden complex.

Tomb Of Mariam Zamani, Agra Reviews
Very calm place, very nice greenery all around. Take water bottle with yourself because there is no shop for anything. An ideal place for couple.
Its a great weekend picnic spot for families with serene beauty of flora and fauna. Best time to go in monsoon.
It's a fine place. Just to spend some time with your loved ones. It is pretty well maintained. Nice Job!!
The structure was originally an open baradari(pleasure pavilion) under Sikander Lodi, who built it in 1495 AD. It was adopted by the Mughals in 1623 AD and was converted into a tomb by making a crypt below the central compartment and remodelling it substantially. The mausoleum contains three tombstones: one in the underground mortuary chamber, which is the grave itself; the cenotaph above it; and another cenotaph on the terrace. The ground floor consists of some forty chambers built by Sikander Lodi, which bears faint traces of paintings on plastered walls. The centre of the ground floor houses the cenotaph of Mariam. This square tomb stands in the centre of the Mughal garden. It is built on a raised platform with stairs on its northern and southern sides. The two corridors running from east to west and from north to south divide the structure into nine sections that are further subdivided into smaller compartments. The largest one is at the centre, four smaller square ones at the corners and four oblong ones in their middle. Massive piers have been used to support the broad arches and vaulted ceilings. The tomb is built of brick and mortar, and finished with stucco.
Great architecture It is situated near sikandra on NH2 highway. Great place for couple.
