Constructed around the year 1586, Hazira Maqbara is the tomb built in
the memory of Qutub-Ud-Din, the army general of emperor Moghul King Akbar.
This Safavi-Persian styled monument is considered to be one of the oldest
and only existing Mughal monument in the city. The mausoleum was built
on a high octagonal platform with smaller gates on the cardinal directions
and five arches on each side. The real grave is located in an underground
chamber and the false grave is in the tomb chamber. The lower portion
of cylindrical dome surrounding the tomb was covered with thick plaster
of brick red colour. An old step well surrounding the tomb was was perhaps
used for supplying the water to the garden.
