About Chanderi

Harkunwar Tomb,ChanderiThe Harkunwar Tomb, believed to be of a eunuch saint, is situated in Bhahar Shaher, near the Hauz – i – Khas. A striking monument, the tomb is unlike the contemporaneous pillared tombs and those where the central burial chamber is surrounded by an arcade, which are found in Chanderi. The walls of the chamber are composed of large stone blocks which are as tall as the full height of the building.

To be found around the tomb are gravestones all beautifully decorated with highly plastic carving. The tomb also has in its vicinity, a well by the same name and a large mosque which is possibly of the 15th century. The tomb itself appears to be a 16th century structure but is in critical need of protection and restoration.
