The tomb is located in Sikandra, a suburb of Agra.

It wasadopted by the Mughals in 1623 AD and was converted into a tomb by makinga crypt belowthe central compartment and remodelling it substantially.

The mausoleum contains threetombstones: one in the underground mortuary chamber, which is the grave itself;the cenotaph aboveit; and another cenotaph on the terrace.
