Afsarwala’s Tomb and Mosque

Afsarwala's Tomb & Mosque

The Asfarwala Tomb was built by an officer in Akbar’s court in 1566. The tomb stands in the 'Asfarwala Complex', a large walled enclosure southwest of Humayn’s tomb in Delhi. It shares a platform with the small Asfarwala Mosque. Both are built in a simple, bold style, in red sandstone and white marble. The tomb is square in plan with beveled corners, topped by a dome.
