  2. Audio tour Summary

    Welcome to Sikandra, the township established by Sikander Lodi in 1505. The Mughals made
    this as their medieval city after defeating the Lodi’s. Jalaluddin Mohamed Akbar chose this site
    for his Tomb Complex.

    Realizing the inevitable death around the corner, he also planned for his own tomb and selected this site for it near the Jamuna River, which was renamed Bihishtabad (The Heavenly Abode). The construction began in 1602 and Akbar himself supervised the construction when he was alive, but couldn’t complete it. It was completed by his son Jehangir in 1612 on the original design of Akbar, which was a beautiful blend of Mughal, Rajputana and gothic architecture.
