Jehangir is the only Mughal emperor buried in
Lahore, which together with Srinagar was his favourite residence. When
he died in 1627 Rajaori, Kashmir, his body was taken to Lahore. His
favourite wife, Jehan designed and built his tomb, a prime example
of the classic Indo-Mughal style: perfect proportions, lattice marble
windows, red and white sandstone and tile work. She and her brother
Asaf Khan buried near Jehangir. She chose a much simpler but still
elegant verson of Jehangir's tomb for herself.
