About the Sikandra Tomb : -
Akbar's mausoleum at Sikandara is a unique pyramidal tomb structure. The architectural specifications of the tomb shows that the structure is a perfect blend of Hindu, Islamic, Buddhist, and Jain motifs, thus reflecting the spirit of religious toleration, which Akbar practiced during his reign.
A remarkable feature of this multistoried building is the presence
of three-storey-minarets on its four corners. These minarets are built
in red sandstone with stunning inlay work of marble.
Any tour to the medieval Indian city of Agra remains incomplete without visiting the mausoleum of one of India's most admired and popular rulers, Akbar the Great.
