Itimad-ud-Daulah's-Tomb


LYRICALLY DESCRIBED As a 'jewel box inmarble", the small, yet elegant gardentomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah, the "LordTreasurer" of the Mughal empire, was builtover a period of six years from 1622 by hisdaughter Bur Japan , Jahaugie's favourite wife.This tomb is a brilliant combinationof white marble, coloured mosaic,stone inlay and lattice work. Stylistically, too, this is the most innovative 17th-century Mughal building and marks the transition from the robust. red sandstone architecture of Akbar to the sensuous refinement of Shah Jahan's Tam Mahal.
