Itmad-ud-Daulah

Built around 1625AD, Itimad-ud-Daulah tomb is home to the remains of Mirza Ghiyas Beg. Itimad-ud-Daulah was the first river side tomb to be built in India, and many of it’s architectural features were copied during the construction of the Taj Mahal.

Because of the Itimad-ud-Daulah tomb owner’s love for wine, many of the inlays and decorations depicted wine bottles and glasses. Although not as popular as the Taj Mahal, Itimad-ud-Daulah is known as the baby Taj or little Taj and was the inspiration behind many of the concepts of the Taj Mahal.
