This tomb is not on the itinerary for many visiting Agra but it should be. The fusion of Muslim, Hindu and Christian symbolism is almost unique. The tomb itself has a peaceful feeling and great acoustics. Everyone tries the 'telephone' acoustics in the arches surrounding...More

This is a bit outside the city but it was my favourite place to see in Agra after the Taj Mahal. It’s beautiful and huge! FYI Akbar was the grand-father of Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal.

I liked this more than my visit to the Taj Mahal. I was awed by the design both inside and outside the tomb. The space is very spacious as well.

A palace with amazing gardens, antelopes , deer. Throughout one sees the great Akbar’s wish to unite the people. Indo-Islamic architecture is evident in the whole site. In some way doubly attractive because it is not very crowded.
