about atgah khan's tomb

Khan-i-Kalan Shams-ud-din Muhammad Khan rise to fame began when he joined the army of Emperor Humayun and soon became one of his close confidantes and administrators. Satisfied with his calibre and loyalty, Humayun announced  Shams-ud-din as the foster-father (Atgah) of his son Akbar. He was made a general in Humayun’s army, and retained that position even when Akbar ascended the throne of India. He further rose to become the Waqil (minister) and was murdered by Adagh Khan (Akbar's forster brother) when Shams-ud-din began investigating some misdeeds performed by the latter. This marvellous tomb was constructed by Shams-ud-din's son on the orders of Akbar himself.
