About Itimad-ud-Daulah’s Tomb (Baby Taj) Tourism

Itimad-ud-Daulah is the title which was given to Mirza Ghiyas Beg by emperor Jahangir. Beg was the father of Jahangir’s favorite wife Nur Jahan and he was the important member of AKbar’s court. Later on, he became Jahangir’s chief minister.

Nur Jahan became the wife of Jahangir in 1611 and she quickly overshadowed Jahangir’s other wives. She played an unprecedented role in the court and its political life. When Jahangir was getting sick, Nur Jahan was the virtual ruler and Jahangir himself acknowledged her abilities.

Nur Jahan was genuinely devoted to her parents and constructed a tomb for them in Agra. This Persian-style marble mausoleum is the best preserved architectural project of Nur Jahan which is known as the tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah where Nur Jahan’s mother- Asmat Begum, her father- Mirza Ghiyas Beg and other relatives were buried.

Nur Jahan spent a vast sum over its construction. The tomb was built by Persian workers and the whole process took six years as indicated by inscriptions. The tomb is situated on the bank of Yamuna River. It is a small two-storied yellow Persian marble structure in the center of Charbagh. It marks the first use of Persian-style marble inlay in India and very likely an inspiration for the Taj Mahal. For this reason, The tomb is popularly known as ‘Baby Taj’ among Agra’s rickshaw-wallahs. It is approached by road from the east through a red sandstone gate.
