Khusro Bagh is one of the popular tourist destinations in Allahabad, India. It is located close to Allahabad railway station. The park holds a huge historical significance as it houses the tomb of Prince Khusro. Prince Khusro was one of the sons of Emperor Jahangir. This place is a must visit for history buffs and people who like to visit tombs and mausoleums. This place is a beautiful park area and is one of the places in Allahabad where you can find complete mental peace in the lap of nature. You will find many families coming here for picnic, couples and people going for morning and evening walk. The garden itself is famous for mango and guava trees.

History

This Historic walled garden was created by Mughal Emperor Jahangir, in memory of his beloved son Khusro. Khusro was eventually killed in 1622 on the orders of his own brother Khurram, third son of Jahangir. Khurram later became the next Mughal emperor and took Shah Jahan for his crowning name. It surrounds the three tombs of the Mughal king - Jehangir’s family. The three tombs belong to Khusro Mirza (Jehangir’s eldest son), Shah Begum (Jehangir’s first wife) and Princess Sultan Nithar's Begam (Jehangir’s daughter). Architecturally, this is the most elaborate of the three. They were buried within this complex in the 17th centuryKhusro's tomb was completed in 1622, while that of Nithar Begum was built on her instructions in 1624-25. It is said that Jehangir employed the country’s best artisans to build these tombs.  From the outside one can hardly understand the beauty of what lies behind the high walls.
