Akbar’s Tomb History (In Hindi) | Akbar के मक़बरे का रोचक इतिहास | Agra Heritage Tour | Ep-6

This Video is based on my recent visit to Akbar’s Tomb Sikandra Agra. This is the place where burials of Mughal emperor Jalaluddin Akbar are present. In this Video, I will be telling you about the History of Akbar’s Tomb in Hindi. This tomb is known to be an important Mughal architectural masterpiece. It was started by Akbar in 1602 and after Akbars death in 1605 the construction work was continued by his son Jahangir(Salim) and it took 8 more years from the year 1605–1613 for completion of the tomb. It is located in 119 acres of grounds in Sikandra, a locality of Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.

History of Akbar’s Tomb:

The most special thing about this tomb is that Akbar himself planned the tomb and selected a suitable site for it and started the construction of it while he was alive. So, the main question is Akbar’s Tomb was built by whom? After Akbar’s death, Akbar's son Jahangir completed the construction work of the tomb from 1605–1613. During the reign of Aurangzeb, Jats from Bharatpur rose in rebellion under the leadership of Raja Ram Jat. Mughal prestige suffered a huge blow when Jats ransacked the Tomb of Akbar the Great, plundering as well as looting the gold, jewels, silver and carpets. It is said that that even Akbar's grave was opened and his bones were burned. As Viceroy of India, when George Curzon came into power, extensive repairs and restoration of Akbar's mausoleum were done, which were completed in the year 1905. Curzon planned for restoration of the Akbar’s Tomb and other historical monuments in Agra in connection with the passage of the Ancient Monuments Preservation Act in 1904, according to which he described the project as an offering of reverence to the past and a gift of recovered beauty to the future.

Location (Where is the Tomb of Mughal Emperor Akbar located) :

It is located at Sikandra, in the suburbs of Agra, on the Mathura road (NH19), 8 km west-northwest of the Agra city center. At around 1 km away from the tomb, lies Mariam's Tomb, the tomb of Mariam-uz-Zamani, who was the wife of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and the mother of Jahangir(Salim).

Akbar’s Tomb Architecture :

The south gate of this tomb is the largest, with 4 white marble chhatri-topped minarets which are similar to (and pre-date) those of the Taj Mahal, and is the usual point of entry to the tomb. The tomb is surrounded by a walled enclosure which lies in an area of 105 m square. The tomb building is a four-tiered pyramid that is surmounted by a marble pavilion which contains the false tomb. The true tomb, as in other mausoleums of Agra, is in the basement. The buildings are mainly constructed from a deep red sandstone, enriched with features in white marble. Decorated inlaid panels of these materials and a black slate adorn the tomb and the main gatehouse. Panel designs are geometric, floral and calligraphic, and prefigure the more complex and subtle designs later incorporated in Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb.

Sikandra aerial view: Mughal Emperor Akbar's tomb and gardens

Sikandra, located only 13 km. from the Agra Fort is the last resting place of the Mughal emperor Akbar. Akbar was the greatest of the Mughal emperors and one of the most secular-minded royalties of his time. He was the heir to a long tradition of oriental refinement, a great patron of the arts, literature, philosophy and science. A visit to Akbar's monument opens before one, the completeness of Akbar's personality as completely as the Taj Mahal does of Mumtaz Mahal's. Akbar's vast, beautifully carved, red-ochre sandstone tomb is set amidst a lush garden. Akbar himself planned his own tomb and selected a suitable site for it. Akbar's son Jahangir completed the construction of this pyramidal tomb in 1613. The tomb stands in the centre of a vast garden, which is enclosed by high walls on all sides. In the middles of each enclosing wall is a monumental gateway. The whole garden is divided into four equal quarters on the conventional charbhag plan. Each quarter is separated by a high terrace or raised path with a narrow shallow water channel running at the centre. Each terrace has in the centre, a tank with fountains. A broad paved causeway leads to the tomb, which has five storeys and is in the shape of a truncated pyramid. The main tomb has a unique square design which is unparalleled by all other Mughal buildings.

Tomb of Akbar the Great, India


Terry J Hodgkinson, akaBrainTap Coach, shows clips of Akbar's Tomb and scenic surroundings.
Interesting to learn about Akbar's legacy - Terry


Background:
Akbar The Great [1542-1605], was one of the greatest rulers in Indian history. He was born when Humayun and his first wife, Hamida Bano, were fugitives escaping towards Iran. It was during these wanderings that Akbar was born in Umerkot, Sindh, on November 23, 1542. Legend has it that Humayun prophesied a bright future for his son, and thus accordingly, named him Akbar.

Akbar was a great patron of architecture, art, and literature. His court was rich in culture as well as wealth. In fact, his court was so splendid that the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth I, once even sent out her ambassador, Sir Thomas Roe, to meet the king! Many of Akbar's buildings still survive, including the Red Fort at Agra, and the city of Fatehpur Sikri, near Agra, which has a 10-km long wall encircling it.
The Tomb of Akbar the Great is an important Mughal architectural masterpiece, built 1605-1613, set in 48 Ha (119 acres) of grounds in Sikandra, a suburb of Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.
The third Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great (1542 -- 1605), himself commenced its construction in around 1600, according to Tartary tradition to commence the construction of one's tomb during one's lifetime. Akbar himself planned his own tomb and selected a suitable site for it, after his death, Akbar's son Jahangir completed the construction in 1605-1613.

Akbar's tomb is the tomb of the Mughal emperor, Akbar and an important Mughal architectural masterpiece. It was built in 1604–1613 and is situated in 119 acres of grounds in Sikandra, a suburb of Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.

The tomb's construction was completed by his son prince Salim also called Jahangir. Akbar planned the tomb and selected a suitable site for it. After his death, Akbar's son Jahangir completed the construction in 1605–1613.

The Tomb has suffered a lot, until extensive repair was carried out by the British under Lord Curzon. The neighbouring Taj Mahal was also looted, and two of Agra's gates were taken away.[citation needed]

It is located at Sikandra, in the suburbs of Agra, on the Mathura road (NH2), 8 km west-northwest of the city center. About 1 km away from the tomb, lies Mariam's Tomb, the tomb of Mariam-uz-Zamani, wife of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and the mother of Jahangir.[6]

The south gate is the largest, with four white marble chhatri-topped minarets which are similar to (and pre-date) those of the Taj Mahal, and is the normal point of entry to the tomb. The tomb itself is surrounded by a walled enclosure 105 m square. The tomb building is a four-tiered pyramid, surmounted by a marble pavilion containing the false tomb. The true tomb, as in other mausoleums, is in the basement.[7]The buildings are constructed mainly from a deep red sandstone, enriched with features in white marble. Decorated inlaid panels of these materials and a black slate adorn the tomb and the main gatehouse. Panel designs are geometric, floral and calligraphic, and prefigure the more complex and subtle designs later incorporated in Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb.[8][9]
