Nizzamudin, Delhi: 11 reviews and 28 photos


Opposite to Nizammudin on the Mathura road and visible from your car is the tomb of Abdul Rahim Khan, the prime minister of Emperor Akbar. Some of materials from this tomb were used in constructing the Safdarjang Tomb and since then it is said to have lost much of its glory. Abdul Rahim Khan (AD 1556-1627) was the First Prime Minister of Emperor Akbar and was known as “Khan-I –Khanan”. He won many battles for Emperor Akbar and Emperor Jehangir and served as the Governor of many provinces. The tomb was built in 1627 AD and originally had a square garden encircling it, which no longer exists.
