Baby Taj, Agra: 36 reviews and 83 photos

 
 

The Baby Taj was the first tomb in India to be built of marble. The walls of the tomb are of white marble which are adorned with semi-precious stones in the form of pietra dura which is probably why the tomb is given the nickname of the Baby Taj. This construction is thought to have been the inspiration for the Taj Mahal

Address: Itimad-ud-Daulah's Tomb, Agra

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
