The Baby Taj

So much is made of the Taj Mahal that the Taj’s elder sister, the ‘Babj Taj’ is often overlooked. While the Taj is white and glistening, the Baby Taj is inlaid, painted, gilded and decorated on every surface.

It’s beautifully constructed – more of a jewel box than the massive statement of the Taj.
It’s official name is the Tomb of I’timād-ud-Daulah. It’s about 23 square meters to the Taj’s 55 meters – about a fourth of the size of the Taj.
