About Tomb of Nawab Saadat Ali Khan

This historical monument with two imposing tombs of Nawab Saadat Ali Khan and his wife Khurshid Zadi, stand near the historical Begum Hazrat Mahal Park. The tomb is beautifully built with special bricks known as Lakhuri Bricks and Chuman (special lime mortar). Inside the tomb is a hall with rectangular verandahs over the four sides that carry arched doorways. The verandahs over the southern and eastern sides have graves of the daughters and wives of Saadat Ali Khan. This tomb also has a big hemispherical kind of dome, which is fluted with narrow and regular types of ribbings. The interesting feature of this dome is its symmetrical shape. This is a perfect picnic destination with a park surrounding the Tomb.
