Tomb of Nur Jahan

The Tomb of Nur Jahan is a red sandstone mausoleum in Shahdara Bagh, a suburb of Lahore, Pakistan located north of the Ravi river. It was constructed for the Mughal empress Nur Jahan as her final resting place. It is very close to the tomb of her husband Mughal Emperor Jahangir and the tomb of her brother, Asif Khan. Nowadays, the two parts are separated by a railway.
