India Old Postcard Tomb Sikandara Akbar Mausoleum, Agra

Vintage British Indian picture post card, Mausoleum of Akbar. The Building of Sikandara or Akbars Mausoleum. Agra. It was completed in 1613 A.D. by Akbar the Great himself.

Series No: 15
Faults: Minor wear at top tips
Background: Sikandra, Akbar's tomb is in the former Lodi capital. Akbar started building his mausoleum in the true Timurid tradition, but the actual monument was completed by his son Jahangir. He pulled down most of the earlier structure and redesigned it according to his wishes and the result is more than impressive. There is a huge gateway, Buland Darwaza, modeled on the famed victory gate at Fatehpur Sikri, leads to the great garden enclosure. The decoration on the gateway is strikingly bold, with its large mosaic patterns.
