Aam Khas Bagh (Sirhind)
First built by Akbar, additions were made by Jahangir and Shah Jahan. Originally the garden was spread in an area of a mile and a half and was separated into parts AAM (public) and KHAS (private of the Emperor use). Rare plants of the Mughal period are still extant here.
The royal part includes a big water tank, a palace with beautiful walls and elaborate fountains. Another monument is the Rauza Sharif of Hazrat Mujadid-Alaf-Saani, Sheikh Ahmed Farooqi of Sirhind, a contemporary of Akbar and Jahangir. His mausoleum is regarded as the second Mecca by Sunni Muslims all over the world as the Sheikh is considered second to the prophet, Hazrat Mohammed.
The annual Urs is celebrated with zest by Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs who meet here in large numbers. Next in the mausoleum is the cenotaph of Shah Zaman, the Afghan ruler.
