Travel to Pakistan: Jahangir's Tomb: Photo 1
Hold on to your horses: we're not at the tomb yet. The grass here is part of a 12-acre rectangular area known misleadingly as the Akbari Serai. (Misleading because it never was a serai of Akbar's or anyone else's but was built so visitors to the tomb could stay in the peripheral cells; for a while in the 19th century, it was used for railway-equipment storage.) The entrance is to the left; two tombs lie off to the sides. We're looking across to a mosque and, behind it, one of those tombs, the once-glorious domed tomb of Asaf Khan, Jahangir's brother-in-law and Shah Jahan's father-in-law (yes, he was the father of the woman buried in the Taj Mahal). Jahangir's tomb is behind us; we'll get to it.
