Made from marble and standstone Akbar's mausoleum was finished by his son and successor Jahangir. the name sikandra comes from sikander lodi the last king of delhi . Akbar the great started the building and constructing the mausoleum and prefectly finished by his son jahangir by added symmetrical design on each three minarates, designs in harmony from both hindu and musilm designs.The tomb itself is located in centre of the garden where there is a deers and peacocks roaming inside the park.

Akbars tomb is located in sikandra which is 10km northwest of agra fort, i visited first sikandra then Taj which is lot easier comming from delhi and then agra itself.
