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. Before you head to Agra, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Agra trip maker tool, to make sure you see all that Agra has to offer, including Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah.

  • Mausoleum of Noor Jehan's parents, Inspiration for the architecture of the Taj since its was built before the Taj, Cute fruit trees, beautiful architecture and design on the monuments  more »
  • I had thought of missing the Baby Taj due to time as there were more things we wanted to see in Jaipur and I even said why get a burger when you could have a steak as we were seeing the Taj Mahal...  more »

  • 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.
