Bahu Begum Ka Maqbara, Ayodhya Overview

Located on the Maqbara Road in the town of Faizabad, Bahu Begum ka Makbara is a popularly known as the “Taj Mahal of the East”. The unique mausoleum dedicated to the Queen Bride Begum Unmatuzzohra Bano, wife and queen of Nawab Shuja- ud- Daula, is the tallest monument in all of Faizabad and is famous for its non-Mughal architectural brilliance.

A wonderful example of Awadhi architecture, the Bahu Begum ka Makbara has three domes, intricately designed interiors and marvellously done walls and ceilings. Built in 1816, in the memory of the Queen where she was buried after death, the shrine costed a grand total of three lakh rupees.

Today, the premises are a protected site under the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI); the gardens in front of the complex have been beautifully done, and the place is an outstanding tourist site. A magnificent bird’s eye view of the entire city can also be seen from the top of the tomb.
