Dilkusha Garden

Emperor Jehangir is buried in a complex consisting of a huge Garden in the middle, his tomb to the right and the tomb of one of his closest advisers and brother-in-law Asaf Khan to the left, Asaf Khan was the father of Mumtaz Mahal in who's honor the Taj Mahal in Agra was built. This photograph is taken from the center part of the complex known as "Dilkusha Garden" and you can see the main gateway into the smaller area leading to Jehangir's Tomb.
