Hoshang Shah's tomb

This beautiful mausoleum is considered the first Marble structure in India & besides the tomb of Hoshang Shah contains the mortal remains of numerous ancient worthies. The inscription at the entrance states that one of the architects of the Taj Mahal, Ustad Hamid visited this monument. In comparision to the the very ornate Taj Mahal however, this is a comparatively more simple structure but no less imposing for its sheer beauty.

The next two photographs are taken inside the mausoleum while the last is in the courtyard.

These tombs are outside the marble structure and you can see the colonnade building in the background.
