Lonely Planet review for Khan Jahan's Tomb
Khan Jahan's Tomb is the only monument in Bagerhat that retains its original cupolas (domed ceilings). The cenotaph at the entrance is covered with tiles of various colours and inscribed with Quranic verses, but it is usually covered with a red cloth embroidered with gold threads. The mausoleum and the single-domed Dargah Mosque are enclosed by a massive wall with short towers at each corner and archways on the front and back.
It's a popular pilgrimage site and therefore has a little more colour and flair than some of the other monuments around here. The pond out front has a couple of crocodiles lurking in its depths which get regular chicken dinners from the site caretaker.
