When in Agra, pay a visit to Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah, an intricately decorated mausoleum, often nicknamed “Baby Taj” in comparison to its grandiose neighbor. The tomb was built in 1628 and is believed to have been the inspiration for the iconic Taj Mahal. Less crowded than its counterpart, the mausoleum boasts more delicate decorations, made with precious topaz, lapis lazuli, and onyx, as well as lace-like, intricate carvings in its marble walls. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Agra fast, fun, and easy.

  • This is a beautiful building and worth seeing, along with the river next to it. We hired a tuc tuc for a couple of hours which allowed us to see this & go to the sunset, Taj Mahal viewpoint. Defo go &...  more »
  • We visited the baby Taj at dusk. This tomb, older than the Taj, remains in the same spirit of eternity. The building is very pretty though less well preserved. At dusk, the pink light makes the marble orange and the whole charming and reassuring. Few tourists also so a little quiet, near the Yamuna River.

  • What an amazing place! Built so long ago but beautifully preserved, this is a must-see if you are ever in this area of the world. Spectacular! If possible, use a guide as the history they know enhances the visit immeasurably.
  • This place was well built. The architecture was awesome. But there is not much to see or spend more time with your family or friends. If you are a lover of art and architecture you will enjoy spending time here. Average time that can be spent by an idle person is 45min to 1 hour. On a whole it's one of the places to visit in Agra if you have ample time for sightseeing.
