Rahim Khane Khanam Tomb

rahim-khane-khanam-tomb

Bairam Khan’s son, Mirza ‘Abdu’r-Rahim Khan-i-Khanan, who served both Akbar and Jahangir was a scholar knowing several languages writing couplets in Hindi under the familiar name of Rahim, lies buried in a massive tomb close to Nizamuddin. Originally faced with red sandstone, relieved by the use of buff sandstone and marble, its design is similar to that of Humayun’s tomb, its interior decorated with incised and painted plaster. The tomb is now bereft of its facing, as these stones were stripped off later to build Safdar-Jang’s tomb.
