Sikandra is the mausoleum of Akbar. Akbar himself planned his own tomb and selected a suitable site for constructing this beautiful monument. To construct a tomb in one's lifetime was a Tartary custom, which the Mughals followed religiously. This structure has a perfect blending of Hindu, Christian, Islamic, Buddhist, Jain themes. Sikandra is named after Sikandar Lodi, the Delhi ruler who was in power from 1488 to 1517. A visit to Akbar's monument opens before one, the completeness of Akbar's personality as completely as the Taj Mahal does of Mumtaz Mahal's .
