shah-quli-khan-tomb

This beautiful tomb was built by Shah Quil Khan himself in 1574-75 AD. Shah Quil Khan was the Governor of Narnaul during the reign of Mughal emperor Akbar (1556-1605 AD). He built this tomb in memory of his father but after his death, his mortal remains were also buried here. Situated on a high octagonal platform approachable from south, the tomb is built in grey stone mixed with red sandstone presenting a remarkable appearance. Both the interior and exterior of the tomb are octagonal in shape having a narrow passage supported on projecting running all along the base of the arched openings and recesses. The interior of the tomb is sub-divided into two storeys.

I recently got a chance to visit the famous tomb of Shah Quli Khan at Narnaul. Honestly, it is one the most beautiful tomb I have ever seen. It was built between 1574-75 AD by Shah Quli Khan. The engraving on the tomb are amazing and perfect example of indo-persian architecture.
