Jahanara Begum's Tomb, New Delhi

5.0
Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Landmark
Visit Jahanara Begum's Tomb to pay respects to a courageous princess who chose loyalty over glory by siding by her imprisoned father instead of her emperor brother. Located in the mausoleum complex of the 14th-century Sufi saint Nizamutdin, the intricately carved marble tombstone is not a popular tourist spot. However, it is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of the Mughal Empire. The small grave has no covering according to the princess's last wish--she wanted to be buried like an ordinary person under the covering of green grass. Make Jahanara Begum's Tomb a centerpiece of your New Delhi vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our New Delhi road trip planning tool.
