about hoshang's tomb

Dedicated to Hoshang Shah, the first appointed Islamic king of the Malwa region, this square shaped tomb is situated near the Jami Masjid, in the Mandu City. Hoshang’s Tomb served as a template for Shah Jahan, while constructing the Taj Mahal as it was the first marble monument to be built in the country. It is known for its exquisite proportions, carvings and ornamentations. The main sarcophagus of the king is carved in the form of a casket and the mihrab moulded on top.

Dharmashala, a colonnade divided into three aisles by rows of pillars is present within the tomb. It portrays a beautiful amalgamation of the Hindu and Islamic styles of architectures.
