Create an itinerary including Tomb of Akbar the Great
Witness the architectural masterpiece of Tomb of Akbar the Great, which the great Mughal architect made for himself with the help of his son. Historical turbulence plagued the region during and after the red mausoleum's construction, and Jats once plundered the intricate tomb, taking with them precious metals, jewels, and carpets. Upon your entrance through the gate, notice the high walls enclosing the lush garden and how the palace strategically occupies the middle. Observe the three-storey tomb with pyramid-like features and four white minarets standing at each corner. Note that foreign and domestic visitors do not pay the same entrance fee. See Tomb of Akbar the Great and all Agra has to offer by arranging your trip with our Agra driving holiday planning website.

  • Beautiful place with mesmerizing architecture. Akbar's presence can be felt in every corner. The monument itself is very peaceful and filled with sounds of chirping birds including parrots. A must-visit place if you ever come to Agra.
