3 Amazing fact of Tomb of Mariam-uz-zamani

Posted Date :   27 June 2020 11:28:30 PM  




1) There are some interesting aspects to the tomb, principally the ASI slab at the
entrance which proclaims the tomb to be that of Mariam Zamani, a princess
of Amber who married Akbar and later gave birth to Jahangir

2) Another interesting aspect of the tomb is that the building looks identical from the
front and back and unlike other Mughal era structures, the back entrance is not a
dummy but can actually be used.

3) Also, the grave itself is underground with a flight of steps leading to it. All in all,
whatever status Mariam Zamani may have had in her lifetime, her resting place is
now dignified.

made to pour down enemies during the war.

3) The area of the fort has vital significance and 80% part of this fort is under the
control of the Indian Military and is shut for tourists. So we can imagine why the
fort was built at that time. 

4) Agra Fort was the image of intensity, quality, and flexibility of those times. The
fort is situated close to Yamuna River and the canal, till date, stays associated
with the waterway. Compelling doors around the post in its four headings made it
exceptionally incomparable of those times.

5) Today, a significant part of the fortification is structured in white marbles. It was
