Located near the Jami Masjid, the tomb is believed to have inspired the builders of the Taj. The interior was once decorated with colored tiles, the remains of which can still be seen.

The proportions of this building are wonderful and its full of history. There are public bathrooms (pretty filthy) across the road. You're not hassled here by vendors or beggars and its easy to walk to fro the mosque.
