This walk has been sponsored by India Heritage Walks, which is a subsidiary organisation of Sahapedia (An Open Encyclopedia on Indian Culture and Heritage).
Reading about princesses, Begums and Empresses of Mughal empire, it is always fascinating to learn about their contribution and accomplishments. Be it Khanzada Begum, Mumtaz Mahal, Noor Jahan or Jahanara Begum, the women were all, right from beginning, some of the most cultured and educated of their age. As for the physical evidence of Mughal ambition and glory, Agra is fairly studded with examples of their vision, in sandstone and marble.
Join us on this heritage walk around Miriam Tomb as we would visit the mausoleum of Mariam-uz-Zamani, the Queen consort of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and talk about other Begums and princesses of Mughal empire and try to understand their contributions and influence on city’s cultural heritage.
