Mariam's Tomb Sikandara Agra

After leaving the tomb, some may wish to continue ? mile(1 km) northward to see what may be the remains of the late fifteenth century Baradari Palace, now better known as 'Mariam's Tomb'. The town of Sikandara, in which both Mariam's Tomb & Akbar's Tomb stand, was established in 1492. It was named after its founder Sikandar Lodi, Sultan of Delhi from 1488 to 1517. He left Delhi in 1502 to take up residence here in his Baradari Palace, built 7 years earlier

The facade of this two-storey, red sandstone building is now somewhat dilapidated, partly due to its various uses before being purchased by the government in 1912. Within is the tomb of Mariam uz Zamani (Mary of the Age), a Hindu wife of Akbar, who was the mother of Jahangir. By tradition, she became a convert to Christianity hence presumably, her name.
