"Tomb of the Mughal Queen"

The historic ghost town of Sikandra, built by Sikandar Lodi, is home to a number of heritages that came up during the Mughal Era. The Tomb of Mariam Zamani or Mariam's Tomb, located at a five-minutes walk from the Tomb of Akbar, is one such monument. Originally a Lodi Baradari (open pavilion), this was modified by the Mughals to serve as the final resting place of one of the Emperor Akbar's wives - Mariam-uz-Zamani. Encompassed with lush green gardens, the square tomb is marked by carved red sandstone panels on its facade. The roof has a cenotaph at the center and chajjas or mezzanine floors at each corners covered with decorative chattris (umbrella). However, the original tomb of the queen is placed at the center of the underground mortuary chamber of the building. One of the key features of the tomb is the absence of a dome which is found in most of the structures built during that time. Open on all days from sunrise to sunset, the Tomb of Mariam-uz-Zamani is piece of heritage well-preserved.
