Tomb of Itemad-ud-Dauli
India, Agra

The tomb of Itemad-ud-Dauli stands in the center of the Persian park, striking with the elegance of lines and the thoroughness of decoration. Nurjahan, the beloved wife of Jahangir, built this tomb for her father, Itemad-ud-Dauli. She did a lot for her father during her lifetime: thanks to her daughter, he received the post of senior chamberlain, and then the first minister under the emperor. In this tomb are also the remains of the mother of the empress. A small tomb on the outskirts of the Taj Mahal was built in 1622 - 1628. and remarkably reflects the taste and mind of the gifted empress. This is a square building with four towers in the corners, crowned with a canopy-shaped pavilion; the floors are inlaid with arabesques. The warm tones of yellow marble contrast with white and black patterns, while the delicate marble panels and rich mosaic of gems are feminine and delicate.
