Noor Jahan Tomb (Punjab)

Maher-un-Nisa, also known as Noor Jehan, was a beloved Queen of Emperor Jahangir. She died in 1645 and was buried in his own built mausoleum. The structure of the tomb is 134 feet square, covered with red sand marble with flowers of mosaic in white, black, and yellow marble. All of the marble was removed in the Sikh regime. The central chamber of the tomb contains two cenotaphs, having an engraving of ninety-nine names of Allah, on the same marble platform, one of Noor Jahan and the other one is of her daughter Ladli Begum.

Tomb restoration work is now in progress by the Government of Pakistan, in its original design and beauty.
