Akbar's Tomb (阿克巴大帝陵寢) was the last place we visited in Agra. Emperor Akbar built this place for his last rest place when he was alive. To construct a tomb in one's lifetime was a Tartary custom which the Mughals followed religiously. Akbar's Tom is well built and decorated with beautiful carvings. Also, there are so many animals around, including monkeys, antelopes, and peacocks.
