The tomb of Firuz Khan Khwajasara is dedicated to Firuz Khan, who was a noble of Shah Jahan. He constructed this tomb during his lifetime and named it Tal Firuz Khan. The monument is built in red sandstone and features a double storeyed main gateway on the eastern side.

The terrace on the first floor has arched chambers and can be accessed using a broad staircase of thirteen steps. The grave of Firuz Khan is on the ground floor, which has subsidiary octagonal storeys. Four-pillared rectangular chaukhandis with pyramidal roofs on top are located on the northern and southern sides of the main building.

The main entrance to the ground floor, where the grave lies, is through the arched opening on the southern side. The roof of the building has a semi-circular dome, which is crowned by a kalash finial.

"Shah Jahan's Palace Harem Custodian"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Dec 24, 2015
This 17th-century Tomb, is a signpost on the Gwalior Road, just 5 Km from Agra, indicates the turning to this unusual octagonal structure, standing on the edge of a lake in the village Tal Firoz Khan, he died in 1647. This marks the spot where Firoz Khan Khwajasara, a natural-born castrate and the custodian of Shah Jahan's Palace Harem, is buried. The red stone edifice stands on a high plinth and has a gateway attached to the main building. Steps lead to the upper storey where a central pavilion containing the grave is located. Highly stylized stone carvings embellish the surface. Interestingly, unlike other buildings of the period, there is an absence of calligraphic inscriptions. If the tomb is closed the village watchman will open the gate. It has a special architecture and special history is buried.
