Also renowned as Shahpeer Sahab ki Dargah, the Mughal Mausoleum is one of the oldest religious sites in Meerut. In order to commemorate the local Sufi Saint, Hazrat Shahpeer, Mughal Mausoleum was constructed in the year 1628 by a Mughal Empress and the wife of Emperor Jahangir, Nur Jahan. As per the Archaeological Survey of India, Mughal Mausoleum has been listed as a national heritage monument. The mausoleum is reckoned to be one of the stunning architectural masterpieces in the city which is built in red stones giving a classic touch.
It is believed the mausoleum’s building work started a day before the demise of Hazrat Shahpeer. Thereafter, the construction of the mausoleum was stopped and it is believed the Mughal Mausoleum still remains incomplete. As a part of its impressive architecture, the tomb boasts intricate carvings. Another beautiful aspect of the architecture of this popular heritage site in Meerut is that despite not having any roof, the rain does not enter the main tomb. On a whole, Mughal Mausoleum is one of those tourist places in Meerut that allows you to dig into the rich historical past of the city.
