Notes on the Geography of Pakistan: Jahangir's Tomb: Photo 1
Hold on to your horses: we're not at the tomb yet. The lawn in the foreground 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 as part of a place where visitors to Jahangir's tomb could stay in the peripheral cells; for a while in the 19th century, it was used for railway-equipment storage.) We're looking at a mosque and, just behind it, 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).
