Chini-ka-Rauza

Historic Building in Agra

This Persian-style riverside tomb of Afzal Khan, a poet who served as Shah Jahan’s chief minister, was built between 1628 and 1639. Rarely visited, it is hidden away down a shady avenue of trees on the east bank of the Yamuna but boasts a fine exterior of coloured tilework and an interior of delicate painted alabaster.
