Shah Ibrahim Tomb

Shah Ibrahim Tomb

Shah Ibrahim Tomb, Shah Ibrahim Tomb historical, Shah Ibrahim Tomb travel, Shah Ibrahim Tomb tourismLocation : Narnaul, Haryana
District : Narnaul
Built By : Sher Shah Suri
Built For : Ibrahim Suri

Sher Shah Suri (1538-46 A.D) had his tomb built in honour of his able grandfather, Ibrahim Khan, who served as an officer of the Lodhis at Narnaul. The monument was constructed under the supervision of Sheikh Ahmed Niyazi. There are two small graves along with. the grave of Ibrahim Khan inside the building. The tomb is a perfect example of the square tomb of the Pathan style characterised by its massive outlines, exquisite details, and pleasing interplay of colours. The creation, of a high terrace, double Storey simulation, bold archs, low domes, beautiful kiosks on curved pillars, selender turrets (guidastas), and elegant merions, give it. balanced strength and dexterity. The use of deep red, grey and white stone encaustic tile-work, painted ceiling with excellent brush work and subtle lapidary give it a richness which is unique among such buildings in Haryana1.

The entrance built after the pattern of Hindu temples, shows beautiful carvings executed with a well-balanced colour scheme. The dome is balanced by four octagonal cupolas, placed at all the four corners of the terrace. The main dome is surmounted by a low dome, which rests on an octagonal drum, the corners of which are provided with small turrets.
