People call it second TajMahal of India. A place not known to many but it holds glorious history of Indian art and Monument. It is older than Tajmahal and holds the same principle. If you ever come to South Bihar don't forget to visit this.

Greetings Vivek, Sher Shah Suri's Tomb is usually open from Sunrise to Sunset. The best time would be morning or evening because noon is hot . In winter, you should visit at noon.
