Etmad-ud-Daulah’s Tomb

The marble tomb of Etmad-ud-daulah, built by his daughter Noor Jahan, Jahangir’s wife, would probably have received a lot more attention had it not been in the same town as the Taj Mahal. This was the first structure with walls entirely in white marble, decorated all over with inlay work using semi-precious stones, and intricate jaali work. It is often called the Baby Taj, because it is believed that this was a precursor to the Taj Mahal.
