Tomb Of Fateh Jung

The tomb of Fateh Jung (who was one of Shah Jahan’s ministers), is a five-storeyed monument constructed in 1647. It is also known as Fateh Jung Gumbad and is located near the railway station in Alwar. It is an imposing structure that is visible from far away. Fateh Jung was a Pathan warrior and was related to the Khanzada rulers of Alwar. His tomb is an artistic marvel and is a blend of different styles of architecture. It is dominated by an enormous dome, and the minarets exemplify its beauty. The walls and ceiling have raised plaster reliefs, and fine calligraphic inscriptions can be seen on the first floor. It is a big delight for architecture lovers to see this stunning monument in a lesser known part of Alwar. This historic monument is maintained by the ASI (Archaeological Survey of India). There is a guard who allows you entry, and one may have to request to let him open the door to the main structure. There is a small garden surrounding the main structure and some information about the history is given on a sign board.
