Numerous tales surround Sher Afghan Khan, his rise to power and eventual demise. Sher Afghan Khan who was the 'tuyuldar' of Bardhaman during Mughal Emperor Jahangir's rule was accused of having conspired with Afghans against the king.
He was eventually killed in this confrontation and his wife, Mehrunissa, famously known as Nur Jahan, who was believed to have been extremely beautiful eventually married the King himself. His tomb is one of the most popular sights in Bardhaman. The tomb of Qutbuddin is adjacent to that of Sher Afghans.
