The maqbara or mausoleum of Bahu Begum was commissioned by Nawab Suja-ud-Daula in the memory of his loving wife. The maqbara is an excellent example of Mughal architecture. History has it that the tomb was constructed in the year in 1816 with an attempt to recreate the grandeur of the Taj Mahal.
The white marble retains its sheen and when seen in the moonlight, seems to give the tomb sheen of immortality. Rising to a height of 42 meters, it provides a beautiful view of the colourful Faizabad and the surroundings. The monument is maintained by the Archaeological department of India.
