We could have spent many hours here. The marble and carvings were overwhelmingly beautiful. We spent time studying the different carvings surrounding the tomb. We had a great time and stopped on route to Agra. My husband felt this tomb to be more impressive than the Taj.

On our way to Agra, we stopped at this site. We had not previously been aware of it. Our guide called it the Baby Taj since it is much smaller and was designed and built before the Taj Mahal. It is clear once you see it that the Taj Mahal is patterned very closely on the design of this structure.... More

Very less crowded to experience Mughal monument with good work on marble. Can be visited along with Mehtab Bagh.

Very quiet only a handful of visitors. A good place to visit before going to the Taj Mahal as it was designed before. Many interesting features. Unbelievably some people have vandalised parts but now it is being managed and looked after.

This is a mausoleum of Nurjahan's (Jahangir's queen) father Mirza Ghiyas Beg. Mirza Ghiyas Beg was referred to as Itimad-ud-daula which means pillar of State. This structure has the mausoleum of Mirza Ghiyas and few other structures as well. A great piece of Mughal architecture, having few similarities with the Taj Mahal, also referred to as baby Taj or precursor... More

15th century mausoleum, as is the Taj Mahal, but this is smaller and dedicated to Itimad-ud-Daulah. It is also made of marble and inlaid semi precious stones.

A precursor to the Taj Mahal. Very few visitors but the building is beautiful so I don't know why more people don't visit. It is set in the middle of the city on the opposite side of the river from the Taj Mahal and you would have no idea it was there.

If you have visited historical buildings with Islamic architecture before, cities of Iran for instance, Itimad-ud-Dualah won't grab your attention very much.It reminded me of Yazd.
