Khusro Bagh Overview

Ranked 10 of 52 sightseeing in Prayagraj (Allahabad)

Khusro Bagh, located close to Allahabad railway station, is one of the popular tourist destinations in Allahabad. The park holds a huge historical significance as it houses the tomb of Prince Khusro. Prince Khusro   was one of the sons of Emperor Jahangir.

Prince Khusro was brutally executed in the war of succession. The facts state that during the fight of succession,  Prince Khurram, who was also the son of Jahangir eliminated Khusro. After that he wrested the power from his father as well. Later as the time passed, Prince Khurram grew up to become Shah Jahan who built the Taj Mahal in the loving memory of his deceased wife.

Located near to this tomb is another unoccupied tomb, which was intended for his sister. In addition, there is another tomb which was constructed for Khusro's mother. She poisoned herself in despair as she was not able to handle Khusro's opposition of his father Jahangir.

    Historical building

    It is must see building if you are visiting Allahabad. There are 3 buildings in a row. These belongs to Mughal Emperor. Made by stones and you can see excellent arts on the walls.

    A walk beside the tombs

    Just opposite the Allahabad railway station, this place is a beautiful park area, perfect for joggers and morning walkers. Four tombs identify the core of Khusro Bagh, all placed in a single line. Beauty is an understatement when the tombs are viewed in the morning dew and fresh sunlight. A must visit place to rejuvenate your senses.
